Make love, not war may have been the slogan of the 1960s, but Lysistrata and her female followers take this one step further: no love until there is no war. The women agree to withhold sex from their husbands until peace is negotiated, a plan that backfires for everyone, with bawdy comedy emerging as the winner. This comic production, accompanied by a live band, will feature original music and lyrics by Keith Munslow, who will also serve as the musical director for the production. This play contains material that is not suitable for children.
Lysistrata will open on Friday 4 April and run two consecutive weekends. Guest artists will feature scenic design by Kathryn Kawecki of Baltimore, MD, costume design by Amanda Downing Carney of Rhode Island, and lighting design by Tim Cryan of New York City.
