Based on The Suppliant Women by Aeschylus, Big Love takes an ancient plot and updates it. An explosively theatrical hybrid, the vaudevillian tragicomedy follows Fifty brides who flee their fifty grooms and seek refuge in a villa on the coast of Italy. The fifty grooms catch up with the brides, and mayhem ensues. Complete with grooms in flight suits, women throwing themselves to the ground, occasional pop songs, romantic dances, and even one bride who falls in love, Big Love is a colossal, poetic work that explores the hunger for independence, the burden of tradition, the shape and size of love, and the hope for a safe place in a society at peace.
