Description

This classic 411 BC comedy by the wily Aristophanes (adapted and directed by Ethan Sinnott) spotlights the women of ancient Greece who have become annoyed with an endless, pointless, and ridiculous war being fought by their husbands and lovers.  Drastic times require drastic measures.  They decide to barricade themselves in the Athenian treasury and renounce sex until their men finally cease hostilities and make peace.  Short version: NO MORE SEX UNTIL NO MORE WAR.  It's a ballsy, cheeky idea converted by our heroine into a plan she engineers to perfection.  As a result, the play has many happy endings. The pithy moral of this tale: love is indeed a battlefield.
