Vaudevillian comedy meets Greek tragedy in Antelope Valley College’s Theatre Arts Department production of Charles Mee’s Big Love,opening on Friday, November 5 at 8 p.m., with additional performances on Fridays and Saturdays, November 5 through November 20, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 21 in the AVC Black Box Theater.
In this modern adaptation Mee takes an ancient plot from Aeschylus’ The Suppliant Women and updates it into a theatrical free-for-all. As fifty brides rebel against their arranged marriages to fifty grooms the ancient Greek themes of justice and revenge are combined with contemporary American themes of love, gender, marriage and murder. In an overload of sensory excess, pop songs, dance and physicality the play examines the struggle to find a balance between equality and love.
Tickets are $8 for students, $10 for senior citizens and military personnel, and $12 general admission. Audience members are advised that the play does contain mature themes and language. For additional information, please call 722-6300, ext 6728.
