Two groups of spirited young women find their paths to independence intertwined when a progressive women's college in 1930s New England takes in a family of milkmaids fleeing an arranged marriage. Mismatched roommates Dody and Athena forge a connection as they help the country girls hide among the students, but when the loathsome and violent Brewster boys give chase to their runaway brides, the comedy of misunderstanding turns to chaos--and peace and prosperity can only come through righteous vengeance. In this unexpected twist on Aeschylus's The Suppliant Women, moments of music punctuate a lyrical tale of learning, love, and sisterhood.
