Fifty brides flee their fifty grooms and seek refuge in an Italian villa in this modern re-making of one of the world’s oldest plays, The Danaids by Aeschylus Mayhem ensues, complete with grooms in flight suits, women throwing themselves to the ground, occasional pop songs and romantic dances—even a bride falling in love. Big Love is an immense, poetic work that explores the hunger for independence, the burden of tradition, and the shape and size of love.
