Title

Big Love

Description

Fifty terrified brides fleeing an arranged marriage take refuge in an Italian Villa, with fifty angry grooms hot on their trail, hell-bent on reclaiming their “property.” As tensions rise and their trip down the aisle nears, sisters Thyona, Olympia, and Lydia hatch a desperate plan to escape the darker side of love and matrimony. MFA candidate Gina Marie Hayes directs a wild version of an Aeschylus play that blows open the gender divide and gives new meaning to “until death do us part.”
