Big Love
By Charles L. Mee 
Directed by Randy Baker 

November 2015
Fifty brides seek refuge from their 50 grooms, doing whatever it takes to stop the wedding. Seeking asylum in a beautiful Italian villa, they experience threats of suicide, pacts of murderous revenge, and maybe — accidentally — acts of love. Charles Mee’s explosive and poetic retelling of the world’s oldest play — Aeschylus’s The Suppliants — is equal parts comedy and tragedy, exploring themes of sex, revenge, and justice. And cake. Lots and lots of cake.
