Lysistrata is the famous Greek comedy by Aristophanes that takes place during the 30 year long Peloponnesian war.  After 30 years of war the women of Athens are over their men coming home wounded or dead, so Lysistrata hatches the plan to barricade all the women in the treasury on top of the Acropolis and deny the men sex when they come home for the games season until they end the war. The men at first ridicule this “women’s nonsense” but as weeks grow on they find life, shall we say HARD for them.

Lysistrata is an outrageous comedy of sexual politics and women standing up for themselves in a male dominated society. Lysistrata resonates with current gender issues and the need for equality but the script is in modern English and full of innuendo and naughty humour, there may be big plastic penises but its never crude or obscene.
