Lysistrata by Peter Anderson
A boistrous, contemporary version of Aristophanes' classic anti-war comedy that flip-flops from 411 B.C. to the present. Lysistrata and the women of Greece meet a narrow-minded patriarchy head-on when they refuse to have sex with their husbands until war between Athens and Sparta is stopped.
