Lysistrata: A Trinity University Theatre Production
April 13 @ 8:00 pm - April 21 @ 9:00 pm$12
Lysistrata, adapted by Ellen McLaughlin, is a fresh, fast-paced comedy inspired by the Aristophanes play. The play follows Lysistrata, an Athenian housewife, who calls for the women of Greece to help end the Peloponnesian War. She proposes a radical plan that 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?
Directed by Stacey Connelly.
