Lumpy Grits Artistry’s sex ban will be going into full effect in March 2018! They will be presenting Lysistrata, an ancient war comedy, that was originally written by Aristophanes in 411 BCE. The setting takes place in ancient Greece.
Lysistrata, an Athenian woman, gathers the women of various Greek city-states to make an oath of celibacy until the Peloponnesian War is over. Their husbands come home with a full erection ready to ‘plough’ only to find their wives denying them sex. The Greek women’s chorus is holding the gold in the Acropolis hostage to block funding for this war. The grumpy old Greek men’s chorus is trying to burn the hags out with their torches. Will the women ever give in to sex instead of accomplishing their ultimate goal for peace?
Come support this ball-clenching production just in time for women’s month. LGA presents their Afro-Greek version of Lysistrata to the Ark-La-Tex. The community organization’s aim is to present educational and entertaining performances. They are truly excited about introducing the locals to early comedy, culture, and politics! Come and support these talented artists.
This production is intended for mature audiences. Suggested sexual content and a little coarse language.
