About the Event
LYSISTRATA, adapted by El Waddingham from Aristophanes’ ancient comedy follows a group of ferocious women as they take a stand against war by refusing to have sex with their husbands (and take over the city’s financial and political epicentre, but that’s far less scandalous) Throw in an all-female/queer cast and crew, language pulled straight from the original text and the comments section of a Twitter argument and a hardy dose of female rage-and you’ve got an emblematic theatrePUNK co. show. Taking a deep stab at questions of activism, womanhood, and queerness, LYSISTRATA is a dagger-edged, glittered new take on an iconic story of women doing what we do best: fight.
