Written by two-time Obie Award-winning playwright Charles L. Mee, Big Love fuses the ancient and the modern by bringing the plot of Greek tragedian Aeschylus’s The Suppliants into the modern era. The story follows fifty sisters as they arrive at an Italian manor, having fled Greece to avoid marrying their fifty cousins. Known for his adaptations of Greek plays, Mee uses the timeless themes of The Suppliants to raise issues of gender politics, love, refugee rights, and domestic violence to a modern audience in this violent, musical, and comic production.
