All’s fair in love and war.
Aristophanes’ comedy, Lysistrata is the tale of the long-suffering wife of an Athenian general fighting in a decades-long war. She finally gets fed up and enlists her fellow Athenian woman as well as the women of Sparta (their enemy) to end the war once and for all: by refusing sex to all the men until they come to a peace agreement. Part of Impulse Rep’s Battle of the Sexes season and directed by Atlanta up-and-comer, Ibi Owolabi, Lysistrata runs in rep The Taming of the Shrew.
