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.

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