The play, written by Charles Mee, is a re-imagining of Aeschylus' “The Suppliant Women.” Fifty sisters who are promised to marry their 50 cousins are forced to flee Greece. When it becomes apparent that the marriages cannot be avoided, the women hatch a murderous plot, the only scheme that can assure their freedom. Mee combines traditional narrative storytelling with expressive movement and music to create a contemporary tale linking modern and ancient ideas about love, marriage, and the differences between men and women. Presented by critically acclaimed Experimental Theatre Chicago and directed by Jaclyn Biskup.
