Big Love

Written by Charles Mee 

Directed by Christopher Petit October 18 – 20, & 26 – 28, 2018; Freimann Studio Theatre 

Big Love retells Aeschylus’s The Suppliants, setting the play in a villa in modern day Italy, where fifty brides have fled to avoid marrying their fifty cousins. While the brides and grooms wait for their wedding day, the play explores issues of gender politics, love, and domestic violence. "I wanted to go back to what some people thought was one of the earliest plays of the Western World and see how that would look today, see if it still spoke to the moment, and of course it does. It’s all about refugees and gender wars and men and women trying to find what will get them through the rubble of dysfunctional relationships, and anger and rage and heartache.” - Charles Mee
