The world premiere of Bull in a China Shop, Bryna Turner’s new play about the women’s suffrage movement, has extended its Off-Broadway engagement. The LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater production, directed by Lee Sunday Evans, will now run through April 2 (instead of the previously scheduled March 26) at the Claire Tow Theater.
Spanning 40 years in a New England women’s college, Bull in a China Shop chronicles the relationship between two women, played by Tony nominee Enid Graham (Honor, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) and Ruibo Qian (Broad City, Mozart in the Jungle) as they work to revolutionize women’s education during the suffrage movement.
Completing the cast are Michele Selene Ang, Lizbeth Mackay, and Crystal Lucas-Perry.
Performances begin on February 11 prior to an official opening on March 1.
“As evolving ambitions and desires strain the couple's relationship, this fast-paced comedy explores how we change the world, how the world changes us, and how we try to grow old together,” read production notes from LCT.
The production features sets by Arnulfo Maldonado, costumes by Oana Botez, lights by Eric Southern, and original music and sound by Broken Chord.
