(From the publisher):
Under the leadership of the determined Athenian Lysistrata, the women of the warring city-states of Greece unite in refusing their husbands all sexual favors until all arms are laid aside. The resulting male dismay and counterattack, the women's valiant defense of their tepmorary citadel of virtue, and the final victory of the female cause represent a sexual comedy without peer in the history of the theater - as well as a fantasy that gives eloquent expression to its author's dream of salvation for his war-ravaged city.
