World premiere of Lysistrata Unbound — In this newly imagined, dramatic version of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata by acclaimed playwright Eduardo Machado, an aristocratic Athenian matron is crushed by fateful events and gradually transformed into the most celebrated anti-war activist of the ancient world. Two-time Emmy-nominated and SAG Award-winning actress Brenda Strong (Lillian Luthor on Supergirl, Mary Alice Young on Desperate Housewives and, most recently, Bryce Walker’s mother on Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why) stars in the title role. The production is a collaboration between Odyssey Theatre Ensemble and Not Man Apart—Physical Theatre Ensemble.
