The Play BIG LOVE, by Charles Mee.
Director Cordula Quint. Producer Ilkay Silk.
Charles Mee’s hilarious and satirical battle
between the sexes finds 50 unwilling brides
fleeing their pre-arranged marriages to 50
cousins. The sisters find sanctuary in a
sunny Italian villa, but a safe haven is hard to
come by with the grooms in hot pursuit. With
no one to protect them, the women decide
to defend themselves and their newly found
freedom by any means necessary, and the
nuptials end in carnage. Mayhem and flying
wedding cake. A hit at the 2000 Humana
Festival of New Plays, Charles Mee’s
audacious update of Aeschylus’ The
Suppliant Maidens is a riotous, wild romp
about gender, male bonding, violence,
feminism and refugeeism.
Tickets available at the door.
$8.00 adults and $5.00 students/seniors.
