Lysistrata
by The Baron's Men

Jul. 11
Saturday

Lysistrata, written by Aristophanes more than 2000 years ago, is one of the best and earliest theatrical portrayals of the battle between the sexes. Set in Athens at the time of the Peloponnesian War, this raunchy political comedy shows to what great lengths the women of Greece are willing to go in order to end hostilities between the cities of Athens and Sparta. The titular heroine and her band of lusty ladies overtake the Acropolis and solemnly (and somewhat reluctantly) vow to withhold all marital pleasures from their war-like menfolk until peace is declared. The action comes to a head the when the women’s stiff resolve stiffens the men themselves, thrusting the play towards its climax. The Baron’s Men are proud to present a reprise of this steamy and hilarious production that keeps audiences coming back millennium after millennium.
