Wars are won in the bedroom.
Lysistrata, the classic Grecian comedy written by Aristophanes explores what happens when women collectively say “get out, I’m not puttin’ out!” The women of ancient Greece have had enough of the Peloponnesian War. They want their men back at home and off the battlefields. Lysistrata gathers the ladies together to unfold a plan of action. The women from Sparta, Thebes, and Athens vow to deny their husbands carnal pleasures until they sign a peace treaty. This ancient Greek comedy explores gender roles and the power that comes with passion. Written in 411BC, this ancient Greek comedy still rings true today with laugh out loud relevance.
