San Diego Premiere
BULL IN A CHINA SHOP
By Bryna Turner
Directed by Kim Strassburger
Lillian Faderman & Phyllis Irwin
Allison Rossett & Sue Reynolds
September 13 – October 14, 2018 // Opening September 22
Set at the dawn of the 20th Century, Bull in a China Shop traces the true story of Mary Woolley and her partner Jeannette Marks as they set out to revolutionize women’s education and electrify the suffrage movement. Told with a modern twist that shoots from the hip, this surprising, whip-smart comedy examines the ambition and desires of two women bent on changing the course of history, and how they ended up changing each other.
About the play coming to San Diego, Executive Artistic Director, Matt M. Morrow says, “I’m thrilled to launch Diversionary’s 33rd Season with this dynamic and powerful new play. Bryna Turner is a thrilling playwright on the rise, and BULL IN A CHINA SHOP speaks to our current social and political climate with courage, smarts and a whole lot of heart. It’s a great way to kick off an election year, showcasing a fierce female ensemble portraying formidable women who made history.”
Director Strassburger says, “BULL IN A CHINA SHOP is a new and surprisingly modern story of two relatively unknown lesbians who not only reshaped Mount Holyoke College, but were also key players in the women’s suffrage movement. Mount Holyoke College transformed during their lives from a school educating the “future wives” of the upper class into a place of learning for learning’s sake. When one adds to this the extraordinary romance of Mary Woolley and Jeanette Marks, BULL IN A CHINA SHOP is a delightful and surprising treat.”
Opening Night is Saturday, September 22nd, 2018.
