Lysistrata

By Aristophanes
Directed by Diana Birrell
30th September – 7th October 1972

This play was written at the height of the wars between Athens and Sparta. Aristophanes’ idea to stop the fighting is both brilliant and simple. He asks the women on both sides to call a sexual strike to bring the men to a standstill. The English version by Dudley Fitt is both hilariously funny and immensely enjoyable.

Part of the Barn’s 1972-1973 Season.
