From an exciting contemporary playwright comes the groundbreaking play Big Love by Charles L. Mee, says Luke Eddy. This fearlessly physical production, observes Eddy, showcases a circus act of elements that defy the boundaries of conventional theatre.

The plot follows the story of 50 brides as they flee to Italy on their wedding day to escape their arranged marriages. The action focuses on three brides and three grooms as they engage in a heated battle of the sexes.

Directed by faculty member Emily Heugatter, the cast includes Sandy Rather, Abby Presswood, Chelsea David, Lauren Morrison, Natasha Sebeyran, Barry James Acosta, David Fitzgibbons, Scott Gibbs, Jacob Bates, Josh Rabalais, Emily Hay, Amanda Spangler, and Tara Watson.
