Lysistrata - Female Actors Needed
The Peloponnesian War is raging on, women of Athens are yearning for its climax and their own. Through the turmoil, a leader will rise with an outrageous idea: No Sex Until Peace!
Eight female actors bring to life Aristophanes comedy, Lysistrata, and explore what happens when an idea ignites action while inflaming the battle between the sexes. In this modern adaptation, Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre asks: "Who is Lysistrata?"
