Περιγραφή

“Of course it’s vulgar. It’s about war.”

After decades of war, one woman has had enough.

Under the leadership of Lysistrata—whose name means disbander of the army—the women of Greece swear an oath to force their men to end all war.

It will be hard, but if they can withhold sex from their husbands and lovers as an incentive for them to negotiate a lasting peace, Lysistrata is confident they will be able to bring an end to the hostilities.

But who will capitulate first? The men because they miss their women? Or the women because they miss their men?

This fresh re-telling of Aristophanes’ comic masterpiece tells the story of how the suffering brought about by the withdrawal of marital privilege was so much greater than the suffering brought about by war that, when forced to choose between abstinence and peace, the men of Greece reluctantly chose peace.
