Big Love

By Charles Mee
Directed by Courtney O’Connor

It’s the eve of their wedding, but 50 brides-to-be are not amused. Promised as infants to their 50 cousins, the girls are having second thoughts about marriage. Stealing away on the family yacht, they seek asylum at a sumptuous Italian villa. But, the course of true love being what it is, the boys soon arrive in hot pursuit and the resulting nuptials quickly turn into a no-holds-barred war between the sexes.
