Krannert Center Events: April 2020: Canceled: Lysistrata

Event Details

By Aristophanes (trans. Nicholas Rudall)
Jason Jang, guest director

Find out what happens when people barter their bodies for peace and justice. Aristophanes’ rumination on sex and war is as relevant now as in the 5th century BCE. Contemporary gender, racial, and sexual identities as well as political debates find ancient parallels in Illinois Theatre’s bawdy, brave reimagining of the classic text.

Thursday, April 16th - Saturday, April 18th - 7:30 PM
Tuesday, April 21st - Saturday, April 25th - 7:30 PM
Sunday, April 26th - 3:00 PM

See the Krannert Center website for more details and to purchase tickets.
