Hilberry Theatre's 'Big Love' revels in the timeless battle of the sexes


Not to be confused with the HBO series about a family of polygamists, “Big Love” is a 2000 play by Charles L. Mee about three sisters who seek refugee status after they abandon arranged marriages in Greece. The current production at Wayne State University’s Hilberry Theatre offers plenty to chew on in terms of gender politics. Ultimately, “Big Love” succeeds because director Blair Anderson and his actors approach the themes of the show with such conviction.
