Spring 2015 Production: Lysistrata

April 9–25, 2015

The Cape Cod Community College theatre program presents Lysistrata, a comic account of one woman's extraordinary mission to end the Peloponnesian War, opening April 9 and continuing through April 25.

Performers from the play: Lysistrata
Pictured: (left-to-right) Kimberly Monteiro as Lysistrata, Gioia Sabatinelli as the Korinthian woman, Cameron Hall as the Young Koraphaios of Men, and Emily Entwisle as Myrrhine.

The production, directed by faculty member Elizabeth Rapoza, takes audiences on a wild and racy ride as the women of Athens decide they've had their fill of seeing their men head off to battle, only to come back injured, diseased, broke and miserable.

Poster for the play: LysistrataAs they concoct a plan to "starve" the men into submission, withholding conjugal goods, rather than culinary ones, a raging battle of the sexes ensues, and the women struggle to stay true to their cause and show they mean business, but no FUNNY BUSINESS! Both sides quickly learn that the effects of withdrawal are potent, and it becomes clear that SOMEONE will have to give in, but who? Find out in this hilariously provocative war between the sexes.

Lysistrata will open on the Tilden Arts Center Main Stage on April 9. The production continues Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:00 pm with Saturday "Pay What You Can" matinees at 2:00 pm, through April 25. Tickets are $15 for General Admission, and free with a CCCC student ID.

Tickets can be purchased at the door, or at the Tilden Arts Box Office: 508.375.4044. (Credit cards are accepted at the Box Office.)

Please note: that there are no Sunday performances.
