In a radical reenvisioning of the greek classic "The Danaides" by Aeschylus, Charles Mee forces us to reconsider our definitions of love, gender, an happiness. 50 brides-to-be escape their arranged marriages in Greece and seek refuge in a villa on the coast of Italy. They are tracked down by their husbands, and are forced to wage a pseudo-war of the sexes to preserve their own integrity and happiness. In this conflict between tradition and progression, honor and freedom, the characters struggle to make their voices heard on what it means to be a man or a woman.
