The humor in LYSISTRATA is the focus of this latest adaptation. Playwright Edward Einhorn, known for his comic absurdist plays, translates the ancient Greek humor into something equally amusing to a modern audience, without losing the flavor of the ancient text. Complete with essays, selected music, and a second version of the play for inventive directors, this newest adaptation of Aristophanes' philosophical comedy focuses on three elements of the human condition that have not changed in nearly 2500 years: war, sex, and, most of all, laughter.
