Big Love

By Charles L. Mee
Directed by Gray Simons
October 20-30, 2005
Laurie Theater

Iconoclastic playwright Charles L. Mee confronts the nature of love and equality in this philosophical comedy with a decidedly physical edge. A contemporary adaptation of Aeschylus' "The Suppliant Women," Big Love pits men against women in a wild romp where animal instincts come face-to-face with society's strict demand for marital order.
