Ashley Rhodes and Jack DiBlasi star in the Texas State production of 'Big Love.'
Beginning in early October, the Texas State-San Marcos Department of Theatre and Dance will present Charles Mee’s "Big Love," a modern look at Aeschylus’s Greek tragedy "The Suppliant Women."
Directed by Caleb Straus, “Big Love” will hold performances at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 6-10 as well as a 2 p.m. matinee Oct. 11. All performances will be held on the main stage of the Theatre Center on Texas State campus.
A powerful drama exploring the dynamics of power in a romantic relationship, this performance begins when 50 women escape to Italy at the last minute from a forced wedding to 50 respective grooms. When their grooms come looking for them, it appears the wedding is back on, but the sisters will stop at absolutely nothing to be free to make up their own minds.
Admission is $10 for the general public and $7 for students with a Texas State ID.
Tickets can be purchased at the University Box Office in the Theatre Center, located at the corner of Moon Street and University Drive and available by phone at (512) 245-2204.
