Aristophanes, translated by Jemima Jayne


A comedy originally by Aristophanes, translated from the Ancient Greek by the director, Lysistrata is a play about a group of women who, sick of the war going on around them, try to end it by going on a sex strike. Since their husbands haven’t figured out a solution, the women of Greece - led by the titular Lysistrata - have decided to take matters into their own hands.
