Hackensack Arts Center,
July 28, 2004
Due to inclement weather, the performance was held indoors at the arts center.
The female chorus (Chance Parker, Hannah Wolfe, and Doriane Swain) introduce the audience to the play's PG-13 rating.
Lysistrata (Andrea Biggs) rails against her own sex for not taking important stands.
Her neighbor Kleonike proves her point by not enthusiastically backing Lysistrata's peace plan.
The women of Athens and Sparta gather to listen Lysistrata's plan.
A festive atmosphere pervades the session as each women is introduced...
...however, a collective gasp is let out when Lysistrata reveals the secret weapon in her peace plan. All the women must abstain from having sex with their husbands.
Holding her fledgling troop together, Lysistrata convinces them that the plan will be sneaky enough to work.
The men of Athens (Jon Ciccarelli, left and Jason Bonthron, right) led on by the Commissioner of Public Safety (Matt Woods, center) arrive to consider their enemy...
...and unsuccessfully attempt to smoke the women out of the acropolis.
The female chorus arrive to see what all the smoke and soot is about and find something fouler in the air.
Skirmishes ensue with both sides.
The very enflamed Athenian Kinesias (Jonathan Brown) arrives to get his wife Myrrhine (Jean Arlea) and relieve his current state. Myrrhine, leads his on and leaves him cold instead.
With arrival of the Spartan ambassador (Jon Ciccarelli, green cape), the men call for Lysistrata to broker the peace and put an end to the seige.
