Adapted by Ellen McLaughlin
Brant Russell, director
Caitlin Hines, dramaturg and director of movement
Megan Steigerwald-Ille, musicology consultant
Ellen McLaughlin’s adaptations of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata and Euripides’ The Trojan Women tell stories of women impacted by war and their struggle to take control of their fates. A satirical comedy, Lysistrata focuses on women who try to end the Peloponnesian War by going celibate until their men see reason and lay down their arms. Known as the first anti-war play in the western canon, The Trojan Women focuses on the surviving women who grapple with grief, fear and the total devastation of their homes after their city’s defeat in the Trojan War.
