Aristophanes’ Assemblywomen is turned into a celebration of fun-filled and silly comedy sketches, slapstick, songs, dance, dumb gags, clever gags, music and women taking the lead.

350 BC. Athens. The country is in political turmoil. Recent wars and alliances have left Athenians no option but to take radical action: a government of women!

Women storm the Assembly, dressed as men, big fake beards, big shoes and a big vision - total equality! A world where power imbalance is eradicated and with it debt, greed and theft. But this has unintended and hilarious consequences...

Age guideline: 14+

Post show talk: Wednesday 

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with no interval

To culminate our VOTE100 programme, our second OP80 co-production brings
together six leading female playwrights and a memorably funny comic cast, creating something fast, funny and fiercely political.
Laura Elliot
Programme Director
