Frostburg State University Theatre will present Aristophanes’ war of the sexes comedy, “Lysistrata,” on Friday and Saturday, April 17 and 18, and Thursday through Saturday, April 23 through 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the FSU Performing Arts Center. A matinee performance on Saturday, April 18, will begin at 2 p.m.
Athens and Sparta have been locked in civil war for 20 years with no end in sight. What’s a peace-loving girl to do? In a bold attempt to save Greece from ruin, Lysistrata unites the women of Athens and Sparta in a “sex strike” to force the soldiers to come to their senses. At the same time, the older women take over the treasury to cut war funding before the entire male population is wiped out. Aristophanes’ fast-paced and bawdy comedy eloquently explores the war of the sexes while simultaneously denouncing the war of the city-states.
