VART Presents ‘ Lysistrata ’
Vermont Actors ’ Repertory Theatre ( VART ) will present Lysistrata by Aristophanes and translated by Sarah Ruden on April 19 , 20 , 26 , 27 at 7:30pm and April 21 and 28 at 2pm at their home at the West Rutland Town Hall Theatre at 35 Marble Street . The play has been called a “ play on legs .” Lysistrata is a play that both promotes peace and the strength of women . In ancient Greece , Sparta and Athens are at war and the women are tired of their husbands being away for months at a time . Lysistrata comes up with an idea that will bring about a peace treaty . The women left at home will no longer engage in intimacy with the men , until they put down their swords . A group of over 20 actors will present the show in the round with the audience surrounding them on the auditorium floor . The verbal chorus is an integral part of Greek plays and helps the audience to understand both the story and the point of view for the two genders . Tickets for $ 20 may be purchased at the door the day of the performances by cash or check . You can also go to paramountvt . org . For more , please contact VART at : actorsrepvt . org @ gmail . com . NOTE : The play has sexual references and is suitable for 17 years and older . The door opens 30 minutes in advance .
