Publisher's Summary

Lysistrata is an ancient Greek comedy by Aristophanes, which was originally performed in Athens in 411 BC. It is a comic account of a woman's extraordinary quest to terminate the Peloponnesian War between Greek city states, by advocating that the women deny all the men of the land any sex. At a meeting, Lysistrata persuades the women of the warring cities to withhold sexual privileges from their men. She has also persuaded the older women of Athens to seize the Acropolis. As the women sacrifice a bottle of wine to the gods in celebration of their oath, they hear the sounds of the older women taking the Acropolis, the fortress that houses the treasury of Athens. Unfortunately, Lysistrata’s policy triggers a war between the sexes....

Ancient comedy come to life

Laugh out loud, amusing play from 411 B.C. This narrator is wonderful and brings these characters to life. I followed along with the story with this PDF...

Don't bother

Such a memorable comedy totally ruined by the narrator. The names of the characters keep being repeated ad nauseam. Not good!
