The ancient world is gripped by a seemingly interminable war.
With the men of Athens serving in the forces, the women of the city can take no more.
In secret they meet and form a pact.
The battle moves into the bedroom.
No sex for the men unless the women get peace.
First performed in 411 BC, this bawdy anti-war play remains one of the great comedies.
Layered with themes of feminism, power and politics, Arcola 50+ presents a play for our time.
