Colossal Tragic-Comedy

Fifty reluctant brides run away from 50 determined grooms, asking for refuge in a villa on the coast of Italy. When the grooms catch up with the brides, mayhem ensues. This modern adaptation of one of the western world’s oldest plays, The Suppliant Women by Aeschylus, is as bloody as a Greek tragedy and as entertaining as a modern Broadway musical. Big Love is a story of love, murder, passion, food fights, power struggles, refugees, gender politics and violence. But in the end it is decreed: “Love trumps all.”

Mature content and adult language

“His [Mr. Mee’s] leap of boundless imagination has refashioned tragedy into a theatrical statement that is comedic, gymnastic, musical, sensual, shocking and redemptive.” – The New York Times
