Drama BFA Production: Lysistrata adapted by Ellen McLaughlin, directed by NJ Agwuna

Saturday, October 13, 2018 at 7:00 pm

The Theater at the School of Drama 151 Bank Street, New York, NY 10014

This fresh, fast-paced comedy inspired by Aristophanes' play, follows Lysistrata, an Athenian housewife, who calls for the women of Greece to help end the Peloponnesian War. She proposes a radical plan: all Greek women must refuse to engage in love-making until the men see reason, lay down their arms and come home to lie 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?

Presented by the College of Performing Arts at The New School.
