LysistrataOr she who disbands armies.
Devised by Young SixSix after Aristophanes.
The war is older than she is.
The grief has stolen her childhood.
The bloodshed looks normal to her.
The men keep calling it necessary.
The mothers keep crying for peace.
The girls keep losing their innocence.
The boys keep dying for nothing.
But it’s funny. It’s funny. Is it still funny?
Young SixSix presents a bold reimagining of the Ancient Greek Comedy; Lysistrata. Devised by the company, this restless retelling looks at the tragedy of violence and asks who has the power to end war?
