This special staged reading will connect THEATREWORKS, UCCS, and our community with an eclectic mix of art, theatre, dance, politics, and ritual. Lysistrata is a raucous, bawdy comedy that has stood the test of time with its sharp insight and wild humor. The play follows the title character’s clever mission to end war by persuading the women of Greece to withhold sex from their husbands until the men agree to make peace. Will peace prevail, or does her plan just inflame the battle between the sexes?
