The University of Akron Theatre program begins its 2018-19 season with Charles Mee’s Big Love. Directed by James Slowiak, the play features a diverse cast of 15 students. Big Love is a contemporary retelling of Aeschylus’ The Suppliants, long thought to be the oldest surviving play script. This tale of 50 brides running away from their 50 grooms is staged in a bold physical style. With provocative themes include immigration, gender roles, and sexual oppression, Big Love promises to be a rich and rollicking adventure.

Price: $10 general admission, $5 for UA students
