Lysistrata The Gladstone Theatre

In a society where men call all the shots and women are confined to the role of docile housewife, what are the women to do when their men abandon them to fight seemingly endless wars? In Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, one woman comes up with a plan: convince all the women to go on a sex strike until the men come to their senses and make peace. What follows is a pitched battle of the sexes loaded with innuendo, biting social commentary, and ribald (sometimes even lewd) humour. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see one of Ancient Greece’s funniest plays, set against a backdrop of pristinely conformist, white-picketed suburbia.
