This site contains the full script of my translation/adaptation of Lysistrata, originally performed in Brooklyn, New York, at the UnderWater Theater, in January - February 2005.  Since that time, it has been produced more than 20 times, mostly in university settings, in locations as diverse as Scotland, Germany, and Vietnam. 

I am making the script available for free, although I do request that you pay for the rights, if you choose to perform it.  Also, if you would like to buy the script, it is published (by Theater 61 Press) and available on Amazon.  And if you enjoy the script and want to make a tax-deductible donation to Untitled Theater Company No. 61, my New York non-profit theater company, it would be much appreciated.

I made a semi-direct translation, then adapted the text, especially the choruses, with a particular eye towards capturing the humor of the original.  I speak more of the process and the text in my Introduction.  There is also a raw text version of the script available.

I hope you enjoy reading it.
