About This Show

Big Love is a play by American playwright Charles Mee. Based on Aeschylus’s The Supplicants, it is about fifty brides who flee to a manor in Italy to avoid marrying their fifty cousins. The play takes the plot of the original Greek play into modern times, including such details as having the grooms ambush the brides by helicopter. While the brides and grooms wait for their wedding day, the characters raise issues of gender politics, love, and domestic violence. Hilarious, with a large amount of stage combat, this brilliant play shows us that the theatre of today is incredibly alive and healthy!
