adapted from the play by aristophanes

 Wednesday 20 May - Saturday 19 June 2015

The Dome, BATS Theatre, 1 Kent Terrace

Just as your buddy John sends more NZ soldiers to Iraq to liberate America’s oil, your pals The Bacchanals return to BATS with Aristophanes’ timeless tale of the women of Athens finding the perfect resolution to international conflict: no more sex until men end all wars! Comedy! Politics! Satire! Priapism!
