Big Love

   Big Love is a play written in the year 2000 by American playwright Charles L. Mee. Based on Aeschylus's The Suppliants, it is about fifty brides who flee to a manor in Italy to avoid marrying their fifty cousins. While the brides and grooms wait for their wedding day, the characters raise issues of gender politics, love, and domestic violence. 

   "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". (from an interview with Charles Mee)

Amherst College, 2017
