About this show

Zona Gale's, 1920 Pulitzer Prize-winning play Miss Lulu Bett will be the latest production to be re-discovered by the inventive and curious Mint Theater. This is the story of one woman's journey to independence and self-discovery. When it premiered in 1920, The New Republic described it as "a serious comedy of emancipation." One week after its opening (eight days after its premiere at Sing Sing Prison), Zona Gale bowed to pressure and re-wrote the play's final act, devising a pat ending that satisfied the conventional tastes of the day. The Mint Theater will present the play with its original ending.
