From the author who gave the world Lysistrada
comes The Assembly-Women
The women of Athens, led by a concerned female citizen Praxagora, are fed up with all the biased,
unfair and frankly stupid laws that suppress pleasant life and perpetuate war created by
the all-male citizen assembly. Disguised as their husbands, the women of Athens infiltrate
the assembly proceedings and surreptitiously repeal many of the irrational and unfair laws
while initiating a collection of new laws with a design towards a more level, rational
society-laws governing everything from distribution of wealth to sexual allowances. Aristophanes'
knack for satirical ribaldry is screamingly abundant in this forgotten gem from the original
master of sophomoric humor.
This show contains satire, raunchy language,
not-so-subtle sexual innuendo and potty humor.
