Description

What grows on barren ground, if the soil never turns? 

LYSISTRATA OR THE DEATH MACHINE 
by Erin Lindsay

Caught in a fascist regime that dominates food production, a visionary woman is joined by the God of Fate, and two of her past selves at the dilapidated site of her fallen revolution to unearth an object promising to end her pain. Lysistrata or The Death Machine is a story that explores cycles of war and violence as they relate to gender and power, the beauty of solidarity in healing, and what it means to survive and be accountable to yourself and others in systems of oppression and scarcity. 

Inspired by Aristophanes’ Ancient Greek play Lysistrata. Lysistrata’s development is supported by Imago Theatre and Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal. Stay tuned for more information.
