LYSISTRATA

Subiaco Arts Centre

"Unapologetically pink and pretty, while the vibe is power" Stage Whispers

“Lysistrata has been confused in its feminist message in the past, but in this production there is no doubt. This is a fierce, fiery, and feminist manifesto that should be seen by everyone.” The Fourth Wall Media

"Conte’s chief challenge here is preserve a dignity and seriousness amid the penis jokes. This she does admirably, thanks not just to the finely-judged performances of her cast — whose a cappella singing is a bonus — but through the use of a restrained, classical staging nevertheless rich in metaphorical, mythological and modern political allusions, recordings of speeches by Hillary Clinton et al. — and a pervasive sense of irony." The West Australian (4 STARS)
