Lysa and The Freeborn Dames (World Premiere)
21 July - 11 August
La Boite Theatre Company is serving up the ultimate winter-warmer with the world premiere of Claire Christian’s new fem-fierce comedy; Lysa and the Freeborn Dames.
A bold and powerful response to Aristophanes’ Greek comedy Lysistrata, this fury-fuelled dramedy explores female politics from the perspective of a passionate young woman on the cusp of self-discovery and self-empowerment in a tiny Australian town.
The production sees award-winning Queensland writer Claire Christian make her mainstage debut as a playwright, with Sanja Simić as director and a ferocious chorus of senior women leading the charge including Barbara Lowing, Roxanne McDonald and Hsiao-Ling Tang. Hugh Parker also stars.
When: Saturday 21 July – Saturday 11 August 2018
Where: La Boite Theatre Company, Kelvin Grove
Tickets: From $30 (+ booking fee)
