Rehearsals are well underway for J.A. Ball and Michael M. Chemers' contemporary take on Aristophanes' bawdy anti-war comedy Lysistrata.
Women striking for peace using the most powerful weapons in the feminine arsenal.
The story of an unexpected revolutionary, Lysistrata, who leads a group of soldiers' wives in a strike against the men of Greece, denying them sex until they've agreed to put down their arms and end the disastrous wars between Athens and Sparta. However, Lysistrata's strategy effectively creates even more war than before as a comedic battle of the sexes ensues!
A hilarious and poignant story with themes as relevant now as they were in 411 BCE.
