- By Charles L. Mee. Directed by Jo Gleave.
When fifty brides flee their fifty grooms and find themselves seeking refuge in an Italian villa, mayhem ensues in Charles Mee’s contemporary re-making of The Danaids by Aeschylus. So save the date, dust off those wedding suits and fascinators and get ready to experience a wedding like no other. A ceremony full of passion, resentment, food fights, murder, power ballads, gender politics and unwanted wedding gifts. Will anyone live happily ever after?
Big Love is a colossal, poetic work that explores the hunger for independence, the burden of tradition, and the shape and size of love.
