Lysistrata, adapted by Ellen McLaughlin

Lysistrata, adapted by Ellen McLaughlinThis timely, political comedy centers on an Athenian housewife who calls for the women of Greece to help end the Peloponnesian War.

Will Lysistrata and her crew accomplish what the politicians could not?

Mature audiences, contains explicit sexual humor and references.


This fresh, fast-paced comedy, inspired by the Aristophanes play, follows Lysistrata, an Athenian housewife, who calls for the women of Greece to help end the Peloponnesian War. She proposes a radical plan: all Greek women must refuse to engage in love making until the men see reason, lay down their arms and come home to lay down with their wives in peace. The women agree to make the sacrifice and all hell breaks loose as men wander the country in an agony of unsatisfied lust. Will Lysistrata and her crew accomplish what the politicians could not?

Mature audiences, contains explicit sexual humor and references.
