The Prestige Project

Unknown 2.jpeg

Bard Fest's "Prestige Project" returns again this year to the wonderful Cat Theatre in Carmel.   In this project we explore classical theatre with top directors and local talent.  

This year we dive back to 411 BC with Aristophanes biting satire Lysistrata. 

The men are at war.  They are always at war and the women have had enough of it.  So they devise a provocative plan.   Would the men stop the violence if the women denied them sex?

With themes that are hauntingly still relevant today, the play explores overlapping themes of violence, 
peace making, femininity, and masculinity,  through biting comedy and social observation.
