This political comedy from the fifth century BC is based around a woman, Lysistrata, who gathers all the women of Greece together to see if they can find a way to end the Peloponnesian War. Their way is to abstain from sex. Unsurprisingly, the men quickly give in and make peace.
The play we went to see was a modern, musical adaption of the original plot set amidst the current euro crisis. The play was hilarious and the acting was very good. Overall, we had a very entertaining evening.
