James Rice directs the play, which shows how the women in the city-states of Greece attempt to stop the Peloponnesian war by withholding sex from their husbands and lovers."The play puts forward a model protest against war which isn't much different from what's happening today, with wives and mothers marching to end violence and gunplay," said Rice in a statement. "In a way, the play is more relevant than ever."
