Εκκλησιάζουσες: Οι γυναίκες στην εξουσία

Corruption and inequalities reached their peak after Athens’ defeat in the Peloponnesian War. Praxagora rouses the women who, in the guise of men, manage to win the Assembly votes that can put them in power. Once in power, they enforce their own reforms, which include the common sharing of property and erotic relationships.

Their plan is, however, undermined and the various tragicomic events that ensue blatantly prove that their endeavour is nothing more than a utopian dream.

The National Theatre of Greece will be presenting Aristophanes’ classic political comedy-satire at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, translated by Minos Volanakis and directed by Yannis Bezos.
