When a houseful of sweet little old ladies discover that a handsome bachelor lives across the street, they are delighted. When they learn that he is none other than Detective Dennis O'Finn, of Homicide, they are faced with the problem of how to attract his attention. The answer is simplicity itself: a nice, genteel homicide with a cup of tea as the murder weapon. When a brash young woman reporter begins to suspect the truth, she becomes the next target. O'Finn is terribly embarrassed when at last he discovers that he himself is the motive for these madcap goings-on, and, in desperation, manages to solve the case. But the dear old ladies are too fond of him and in the end they turn the tables on him! First a short story in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, later a success on "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," and now a stage veteran of hundreds of performances around the country, Bull in a China Shop continues to enchant audiences everywhere!

This is for all levels of schools.  The old ladies here can be played over the top with every stero type "schtick" one wants.  The set will be a problem because it reguires antique looking furniture and the costumes must be vintage to set the proper mood.  The male roles are limited to two with one of them really a minor role.  The main male role reguires a husky and hansome man.  As for the old ladies roles, well ....since the ladies kill off their own, these roles are very small to a little bigger depending on who is next. The general feeling of the show is old and sweet.  This will appeal to an older audience than a teenage one.
