STORRS- Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) will present Big Love by Charles Mee, Oct. 3 – 13 in the Nafe Katter Theater, Storrs. Big Love is a luxurious, riotous, wild romp in which 50 brides – all sisters – vow to escape their 50 fiancés – their cousins— on their wedding night. Seeking to get away from the old country, where marriage is contracted and love is unheard of, the sisters leave their betrothed standing at the altar as they hop a boat for better times and a little equality. As the brides seek asylum at the villa of a family man who is unwilling to take sides, the grooms catch up – by helicopter. With no one to stand up for them, the women decide to stand up for themselves by any means necessary. Big Love gives the term “battle of the sexes” a whole new meaning! Weeknight evening performances start at 7:30 p.m. Weekend evening performances start at 8 p.m. Matinee performances start at 2 p.m. Ticket prices range from $7 - $37.
