“The Trial of Lysistrata” based on Lysistrata by Aristophanes
Presented by the STC Bard Association
Often called the first feminist, Lysistrata rallied the women of the enemy against her own city and organized her fellow women against their own men, all in order to stop a war that she thought unjust. Is she a traitor or heroine? Under the auspices of the Embassy of Greece, you are invited to attend a special session of the Supreme Court of Athens to hear the case of the People v. Lysistrata.
