By: Aristophanes, Adapted By: Ellen McLaughlin

Ellen McLaughlin’s 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 lovemaking 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 pandemonium ensues as men wander the country in an agony of unsatisfied lust. Will Lysistrata and her crew accomplish what the politicians could not?
