Women and war. Sex and politics. A battle of the sexes.

The most famous Greek comedy of all time, Lysistrata tells the story of a woman’s extraordinary mission to end the war by denying all the men of the land any sex. In light of the recent #MeToo movement, Lysistrata celebrates consensual sex and women’s agency to use their sexuality as a political tool. Written in 411 BC, the play’s themes of femininity, sex, power and politics still holds true in 2018.

tempest brings this iconic Greek play to life this winter at Subiaco Arts Centre with an all-star female cast from Perth’s theatre scene.
