Fall mainstage play rehearsal – "Big Love" October 28, 2009 Date of Event: October 28, 2009 Photos taken by: Tim Blaum ’10 Related Links: Press release The stage has been converted into a huge, empty swimming pool for Goshen College’s fall mainstage play, “Big Love,” written by Charles Mee and directed by Michelle Milne. Big Love is a contemporary play based on one of the oldest existing play scripts in the world – an ancient Greek play “The Suppliants” by Aeschylus. In the play’s plot, 50 sisters seek asylum from a contract made by their father when they were infants, who promised them in marriage to their 50 cousins. The women point out that they weren’t consulted when the contract was made; the men claim that a contract is a contract. A wide range of opinions are put forth, and pleas are made by both sides to their Italian hosts. The set was designed by Goshen College alumnus Dave Nofsinger, who is a professional set designer and teaches at the University of Memphis, and Anne Berry, Goshen College assistant professor of art.
