The Department of Human Communication and Theatre at Trinity University will present its final show of the season, Lysistrata. The production is an adaptation of the ancient comedy by Aristophanes, re-told by Ellen McLaughlin for the Lysistrata Project in 2003. This production is directed by Dr. Stacey Connelly.
Frustrated by a war that will not end, the women of Athens decide to deploy a secret weapon until the men end the fighting once and for all. More than tensions swell as the women, led by Lysistrata, hold out the allure of a peaceful climax. Will their seductive strategy defeat the combatants or just stiffen their resolve? This show is recommended for mature audiences (especially those who enjoy a little immaturity).
Lysistrata opens April 13-15, and will continue April 18-21 in the Stieren Theatre, located in the Ruth Taylor Theatre Building. Curtain times are 8:00pm Friday and Saturday, 2:30pm Sunday, and 7:00pm on Wednesday and Thursday.
Ticket prices are $12.00 for Adults, $8.00 for Seniors, Faculty/Staff, Alumni, and $6.00 for Students. Tickets can be purchased online at tinyurl.com/trinityutheatre and at the theatre box office Monday through Friday, 2-5p.m. Reservations can be made by calling 210-999-8515 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The box office is also open one hour prior to each performance.
