Michael M Chemers
"What if they stopped a war because nobody came?" The first make-love-not-war play ever written, Lysistrata is a bawdy comedy about the War Between the Sexes set against the tragedy of a civil war. Ball and Chemers have created a new version of the play that brings out the erotic playfulness of the original while expanding on Aristophanes' unsparing dissection of militarism.
