The country is in political turmoil. Recent wars and alliances have left Athenians no option but to take the most extreme action. The most radical: a government of women!
Strategia masterminds and leads a daring coup d’etat, outlining her utopian vision of total equality to her crowd of cross-dressing collaborators. A world where power imbalance is eradicated and with it debt, greed and theft. But this has unintended and hilarious consequences.
A raucous new comedy with songs, dances, dumb gags and clever gags, and a reimagining of the original by a team of leading female writers from the world of poetry, broadcasting, theatre and stand up. Combined with an exceptional comic cast and led by our own NST Associate Blanche McIntyre (Tonight at 8.30, Noises Off, Nuffield Southampton Theatres, The Norman Conquest, Chichester Festival Theatre and The Writer, Almeida Theatre) Aristophanes' Women In Power is turned into a celebration of sketches with songs, dance, music and women taking the lead.
