Looking for Lysistrata (2000)

Aristophanes: “Looking for Lysistrata”
Translated by Dudley Fitts

 

When Lysistrata, Athenian housewife and mother, calls the women of Greece to a meeting in one of the public squares of Athens, nobody imagines that the actions of a few women can bring the male society to its knees and an end to the twenty-year Athenian-Spartan war ravaging Greece.
Led by Lysistrata, women from all parts of Greece take a solemn oath of sexual abstinence until their men stop the war. And, in a time when a woman’s place was definitely in the home, women come out into the streets and take charge of the treasury, situated on Athens’ famous mountain, the Akropolis, using pots, pans and whatever makeshift weapons they can find.
But time is running out for Lysistrata, who has trouble keeping her sex-starve women-at-arms in check. In the end, it all boils down to the crucial question: Who will crack first?
