LOCAL: CULTURAL RESISTANCE: March 2-3: Lysistrata - A Worldwide Act of Theatrical Dissent - Comes to Chicago

On March 3, 2003, the Lysistrata Project will present worldwide readings of Aristophanes's bawdy ancient Greek antiwar comedy Lysistrata. To date, 890 play readings are scheduled in 56 countries and in all 50 U.S. states to voice opposition to the war on Iraq; those numbers increase hourly. Readings will raise money for charities working for peace and humanitarian aid in the Middle East and elsewhere. Twenty separate performances by different theater projects are scheduled on Sunday and Monday in Chicago alone, with more being scheduled daily. Full story.
