On a mission to end the Peloponnesian War, Lysistrata bands together the women of Greece in a pact to withhold sex until the men declare peace. As the women tantalize and tease their way to harmony, a timeless story emerges of sexual politics, political power struggles, and the battle between the sexes. Funny, poignant, and more than a little dirty, Lysistrata celebrates the power of women and reason in the face of destruction.
