Lysistrata  | Open: 12/09/09 Close: 12/20/09 - Wings Theatre
A group of modern-day men and women present this sexy, classic Greek comedy. In the midst of a battle-torn country, with division amongst the states, the women of Greece have united with one common cause. To bring about national peace, they will bring a different war to their doorstep - by withholding sex until the parties can finally agree on a healthcare plan...er, to unify Greece. Let the true battle of the sexes begin!

No Sex Please, We're British  | Open: 07/18/09 Close: 07/26/09 - Chernuchin Theater at ATA
Scandinavian pornography abounds when it is mistakenly sent to a bank branch manager and his young bride.  They try to keep it safely hidden from his nosy mother who happens to be visiting, his boss who's trying to become family, a bank inspector with insomnia who comes by for an unexpected visit and a tipsy police superintendent. With the help of the chief cashier who is way over his head, they manage to spin the most insane and deliciously fun web of mistaken identities, physical mishaps and hilarious complications resulting in a true classic door-slamming, high energy farce.

Directed by Christine Vinh Weems

Assistant Directed by Sara Towber
