The Ancient Greek satire, in which women withhold sex from their husbands in order to stop the war between Athens and Sparta, is a high-energy farce which retains its relevance to women’s role in politics today.
Set in modern-day Bangalore, the characters are ‘heightened versions of people you might meet at Koshy’s’, says Jeff.
The production runs for 2 1/2 weeks in December 2011 and opens Jagriti’s new Theatre Season.
