When fifty women escape to Italy at the last minute of a forced wedding to fifty respective grooms, their grooms come looking for them. It appears the wedding is on, but the sisters will stop at absolutely nothing to be free to make up their own minds. Charles Mee's modern look at Aeschylus's Greek tragedy The Suppliant Women explores the dynamics of power in romantic relationships and is both a powerful drama about the battle of the sexes as well as "a physically and intellectually explosive comedy".
