Now Playing:

Lysistrata: A Woman's Translation

By Drue Robinson

Directed by Bridget S. Dunne

Director Bridget S. Dunne (previously directed She Kills Monsters) says, "This play is funny, as you probably know. VERY funny. Underneath that humor, though, is a powerful story of regular women standing up for what they believe in and taking control of a situation that is simply unacceptable. These women aren't famous, they're not soldiers or politicians; they are wives, mothers, sisters, HUMANS, who havedecided they won't tolerate the waste and death that they've had to live with for too long. Lysistrata comes up with this plan, yes, but she can't do it alone. It takes a force of many to shake things up and make the men realize that there's more to life than war."
February 8-March 3, 2019. Fri-Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2pm.

Tickets: $24.

Lysistrata: "Indomitable fun and enthusiasm save the day."

Posted: February 15, 2019.
"The 14-person Vortex cast, led by Jen Stephenson as a forceful and dominant Lysistrata, takes on this hoary fixture of regional theater with elan and panache."
(-Wally Gordon, Talkin' Broadway Regional Reviews)
