The Assembly Women Opens October 18th
Set in ancient Athens, a group of women disguise themselves as men to vote in favor of giving women control over the government. Once they gain control, the women create a totalitarian-esque government that provides shelter, food, and basic care for every Athenian citizen. Sexual freedom also is granted to the citizens, and in the name of equality, every man may sleep with every woman—provided he sleeps with the ugly women before sleeping with a beautiful one.
Though the show is rooted and set in Ancient Greece, the audience can expect a few modern touches woven in to the production.
