Brock Alumna and DART TA, Lauren Shepherd, will be seen performing this summer in Canopy Theatre's Outdoor Theatre for Downtown Toronto production of:
LYSISTRATA – the sex strike by Aristophanes (Adapted by Germaine Greer and Phil Willmott)
Known for its bawdy humour, Lysistrata tells the tale of how one woman encourages a nation of lustful ladies to deny their husbands any sexual attention until the men declare peace and put a stop to civil war. Germaine Greer’s adaptation keeps all of the expected phalli, sexually charged hijinks and anti-war rhetoric while also exploring issues of gender politics and class bias. Guaranteed to be the sexiest production ever seen on Philosopher’s Stage, Lysistrata comes with a ‘mature content’ warning: This is not a family show!
Tickets can be purchased online at: www.canopytheatre.ca, or at the door. Students, Wednesday nights are PAY WHAT YOU CAN! Bring a blanket and enjoy the fun!
