Maureen Wagner talks with Brian Evans about "Lysistrata"

On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, Maureen Wagner talks with Brian Evans about Lysistrata, a co-production of the Ohio University School of Theater and School of Dance.

Set during the Peloponnesian War, a Greek woman named Lysistrata unites the other women of Greece in a sex strike as a way to broker peace with Sparta.

Dance, music and ribald comedy are featured in this stripped-down production of Aristophanes' classic anti-war play.

Adapted by Ellen McLaughlin, Lysistrata is directed by Assistant Professor Brian Evans of the School of Theater and choreographed by School of Dance Director of Choreography Travis Gatling.

Performances will take place Feb. 20-Feb. 23 and Feb. 26-Feb. 28 in the Forum Theater, located on the ground floor of the Radio-Television Building, 35 South College Street.

Ohio University students will be admitted free with an OU ID, courtesy of Arts for Ohio. Regular tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for seniors and other students.

For tickets, call 740-593-1780 or visit the Fine Arts Ticket Office in Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium.
