A radical modern reimagining of a 2500-year-old Greek comedy about going on strike to end a war, from a company of ten women actors from lands as far flung as Ukraine, Syria and Zimbabwe, now seeking sanctuary in London. A moving, funny and provocative piece about losing homes and making new ones, sisterhood and solidarity.

Expect singing, sauciness and heartfelt moments in this new work from an award-winning creative team including director Sepy Baghaei and playwright Carmen Nasr, devised with the company and drawing on their own untold stories.

I am Lysistrata has been developed using public funding by Arts Council England and with the support of Glastonbury Festival, National Lottery Community Fund, and the Maria Bjornson Memorial Fund. It is produced by Itab Azzam of Makani, whose previous work in theatre and film includes Antigone of Syria and BAFTA-winning documentary Exodus: Our Journey to Europe.
