(Mahwah) — The theater program of Ramapo College of New Jersey will present Lysistrata, written by Aristophanes, April 20 – 22 and 26 -2 9.  Ulla Neuerburg-Denzer, an assistant professor of theater at the College, will direct the play.

The theme of Lysistrata proclaims, make love, not war!”  With the Peloponnesian Wars raging, the distressed women of Athens take matters into their own hands, refusing to make love with their husbands until the war is over.  This social spoof, written by Aristophanes in 411 B.C., is as relevant to modern concerns about war as it was in ancient Greece.
