A new play by Jean R. Freedman
(with additions and emendations by Abeer Shehadeh)

In LYSISTRATA IN JERUSALEM Jean R. Freedman has updated of Aristophanes' classic comedy in which women from warring city-states band together and refuse to have sex with their men until a peace treaty is signed. Lysistrata in Jerusalem brings this strategy to the contemporary Middle East, creating a world in which Israeli and Palestinian women seek to end the conflict by taking matters into their own hands.
