Our Lysistrata (Liz to you) is one in a million. The original embodiment of girl power in a man’s world where women’s only weapon is sex. The women are all tired of playing widow to the war games, so Liz leads them into battle to win back their men - by staging a sexual siege! But who will surrender first? Will peace (and love) break out? To find out this - and to learn more about the application of tuna paste with optional mayonnaise to the body - get frisky with Derby LIVE Community Theatre, as they embark on their third year, and no doubt their most rip-roaring and risqué endeavour to date. A show filled to the brim with innuendo... Contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature. Recommended for those 15 and over.Company Derby Live Community Theatre. Adapted by Peter Roberts.
