Roial Players Theatre Troupe is putting on LYSISTRATA. General admission only $5. The show will be in Snyder-Phillps Hall basement on campus. The show dates are Thursday, November 7 at 9pm Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 1pm. Originally performed in classical Athens in 411 BCE, it is a comic account of one woman\'s extraordinary mission to end The Peloponnesian War. Lysistrata persuades the women of Greece to withhold sexual privileges from their husbands and lovers as a means of forcing the men to negotiate peace %u2014 a strategy, however, that inflames the battle between the sexes. The play is notable for being an early exposť of sexual relations in a male-dominated society.
