About the Performance
Lysistrata, a woman of Athens, undertakes to disband the army by enlisting the help of all Greek women. These women, who have sent their children to the slaughter, who have been separated from their partners, take an oath of abstinence from their carnal duties, thus forcing the men to end the war.
Written with sparkling wit during the darkest hours of the Peloponnesian War, Lysistrata (411 BC) is a timeless ode to peace, love and womankind.
The Greek National Theatre presents the boldest of all Aristophanic comedies directed by the iconoclast Yiannis Kakleas, and featuring an ensemble of talented actors.
