Theatre Academy Presents: Lysistrata

Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 02:00 PM

An adaptation of Aristophanes’ classic comedy.

Lysistrata Versus Toxic Masculinity is a modern twist on an ancient comedic tale. In Aristophanes' original play, Lysistrata successfully ends an ongoing war by getting the women of both sides to withhold sex from the men until they stop fighting. In our new play, Lysistrata's excitement and hubris at her own success cause The Gods to send her on a time traveling adventure where she encounters historical and mythic figures. This darkly comic journey expands her understanding of what drives conflict and war, and further fuels her desire to fight for peace no matter the time or place.
