Alley Repertory Theater: Bull In a China Shop

Thursday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 22


Alley Repertory Theater has dubbed its upcoming season The Age of Women, writing, "We have always known that the future is female. For our 2017-18 series, the future is now." ART will kick off the future with the Bryna Turner play Bull In a China Shop, an uproarious historical comedy about a couple of badass suffragettes whose lives spin out for years as they battle for women's rights and education. The show will run two consecutive weekends (starting with a "pay what you want" preview performance) before giving way to The Golden Girls Christmas Extravaganza and Women of a Certain Age. ART's mission this season is to portray "the strong, unconventional and subtle beauty of women," is as powerful as, well, a bull in a china shop.
