In this election year, what could be more fitting than our choreographers and composers taking their inspiration from Dr. Barb Palmer's research on the success of women candidates?  From Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Hillary Clinton, they will explore the challenges, scandals and 'fashions' of women in politics.

"There is no such thing as an original play."  - Chuck Mee
Big Love puts a unique, modern twist to the Greek play The Suppliants by Aeschylus when fifty brides (represented by 3) flee to a manor in Italy to avoid marrying their fifty cousins.  After being ambushed by the grooms via helicopter, a murder plot is hatched by hard core feminist older sister, Thyona.  While the brides and grooms wait for their wedding day, the characters raise issues of gender politics, love, and domestic violence.  A surrealistic journey of song, dance, and movement, Big Love inevitably shows us that "love trumps all."

We end our main stage series with a joyfully restorative tale set amongst the wine, wisteria and Mediterranean sunshine.  Longing to get away from the malaise of post-WWI London and the stasis of their respective marriages, housewives Lotty and Rose are enticed by an ad in the paper that reads, "Small castle on the Mediterranean, Northern Italy.  To be let for April.  Cook, gardens, ocean view."  Impulsively, they rent the Italian villa, recruit two very different English women to share the cost and plan their escape.  All four women dive into the experience of a lifetime, shed inhibitions and blossom anew - rediscovering themselves in ways they could never have imagined.
