Blake Morrison’s re-working of Aristophanes’ classic comedy Lysistrata takes a humorous look at the great issues of our time.

It is 2007 in the northern mill-town of Blackhurst and intolerable racial tensions are tearing the mixed community apart. Something must be done, and sharpish. Radical behaviour requires a radical plan and Lisa hatches an outrageous plot to encourage peace – a sex strike – no more nooky till the fighting stops, with riotously funny consequences.

But as the women of Blackhurst strive towards love not war they make a disturbing discovery that turns their local dispute into a demonstration of global proportions.

This production contains explicit language and is not suitable for theatregoers aged 15 or younger.
