July 6 – September 13 · Howard Family Stage in the Douglas Campbell Theatre
It’s 2018 and a development project is threatening Vancouver. A company of Bard actresses responds by staging Lysistrata, Aristophanes’ outrageous comedy about the first-ever female strike. First staged in 411 BC, Jennifer Wise and Lois Anderson‘s adaptation delivers a unique new play – a glorious, bawdy romp that investigates how humour and art can take their place in the political arena.
Directed by Lois Anderson, whose Pericles for Bard in 2016 won her the Jessie Award for Outstanding Direction (Large Theatre).
Mature language and themes.
