National Theatre of Greece Comes to Northern California!

Marquis poster for LysistrataThe National Theatre of Greece will be performing Aristophanes' Lysistrata in a U.S. debut at the Calvin Simmons Theater in Oakland, Friday, Oct. 1 & Sunday, Oct. 3.

Lysistrata tells the story of the Athenian woman of the same name who, fed up with the endless warring between Athens and Sparta, takes diplomacy into her own hands by organizing with her fellow women a sex strike designed to force an end to the war. Exuberant, hilarious, provocative, and thoroughly modern, Lysistrata is a classic comedy of the Greek stage.

The performance will be in Modern Greek with English supertitles.

Discounted ticktets are available through:
