“Lysistrata” adapted by Jennifer Wise and Lois Anderson
July 6 - September 13$24 – $80
It’s 2018 and a development project is threatening Vancouver. A company of Bard actresses responds by staging Lysistrata, Aristophanes’ outrageous 411 BC comedy about the first-ever female strike. Jennifer Wise and Lois Anderson‘s new 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).
