Event description

Description

Sharron (Bower) Anderson returns to Austin with a staged reading of Lysistrata at the Spider House Ballroom for one night only: Sunday, August 27, 2017 to benefit Austin Shakespeare. A cast of 20 well-known actors portray Ellen McLaughlin's take on the ancient Greek comedy by Aristophanes, where Greek women withhold sex from their partners to coerce them to return home from war. Between thrusts of phallic humor and anachronistic silliness, this Lysistrata manages to highlight questions of national priorities, humanitarian awareness, and diplomacy vs. violent domination. Not suitable for children.

DOORS OPEN AT 6:30 PM. COME EARLY TO FACTOR IN PARKING, WHICH CAN BE TRICKY.

Advance tickets $15; Tickets at the door $20; Cash Bar

All proceeds to benefit Austin Shakespeare

Cast: Travis Aitken, Roxy Becker, David Boss, Janelle Buchanan, Mary Alice Carnes, Tiara Clayton, Robert Deike, Lana Dieterich, Kara Bliss, Nancy Eyermann, Griffin Gardner, Paula Gilbert, Carlen Gilseth, Karen Mal, Helen Merino, Elizabeth Mason, Rommel Sulit, Johanna Whitmore, Patrick David Wheeler and Joseph K. Wilson.
