SHOW CREDITS:
Written by Aristophanes
Adapted and Directed by Jeff Marontate

SYNOPSIS:
Korda mounts a new production of one of the funniest – and naughtiest – plays ever written: the original anti-war comedy Lysistrata, written by Aristophanes in 411 BC, and newly adapted by Director Jeff Marontate. In this brilliant comedy, the women of Greece stage a sex strike in order to end a bloody war. It’s woman versus man in this crazy, sexy, hilarious battle for peace. Based on the success of Korda’s previous Lysistrata in 2007 and of Marontate’s adaptation of Aristophanes’ The Birds in 2014, and on the current political climate, Korda felt it was a timely and important play.

“Lysistrata is a compelling battle of the sexes… Aristophanes wrote comedies of ideas and the one that kicks off Lysistrata is a corker that has become a Greek myth in its own right, thereby earning the author a place at the very top of the class.” – The National Post.
