Lysistrata

Written by Ellen McLaughlin

Directed by Christiane Georgi

“Look on the bright side, the Greeks can agree about one thing. Everybody hates us”

Can one woman bring an end to the Peloponnesian War by rallying the wives in her community to withhold s-e-x from their husbands? The clever and determined Lysistrata is going to give it her best shot. For this modern, sexy adaptation of Aristophanes’ classic comedy Lysistrata, downtown Culver City’s historic Ivy Substation transforms into a dark cabaret. Join the Actors’ Gang for its workshop production of this audacious, 2,426-year-old tale of an anti-war sex strike that’s brimming with innuendo and bawdy fun.
