Mathers Theatre, Holland Union Building
$7, or $5 with student ID

In this unconventional retelling of The Suppliant Women by Aeschylus, Charles L. Mee turns the ancient tale of justice, revenge and the battle of the sexes into a wild celebration of love and a meditation on the contemporary themes of domestic abuse and gender inequality.

– The New York Times
