Big Love by Charles L. Mee
CFT closed its 2010-2011 season with Big Love by Charles Mee. It was performed at the Royal George Theatre, Gallery Space, 1641 North Halsted in Chicago and will open in May 2011.
Big Love is an adaptation of the early Greek play The Danaids by Aeschylus, which focuses on 50 Greek brides who are contracted to wed their cousins against their will. There is a strong connection between CFT’s mission and Charles Mee’s artistic aesthetic that strives “to get past traditional forms of psychological realism.” The company will showcase the work of Chicago wedding/fashion designers, pastry chefs, modern artists and musicians in order to continue to build our artistic community and expose new audiences to a variety of arts in the spirit of the company’s mission.
