Theater at Monmouth’s Season 53, It’s Greek (and Roman) to Me! will kick off with “Lysistrata,” by Aristophanes I and directed by Danielle Drakes, on June 25 at Cumston Hall, at 796 Main St. in Monmouth.

Performance times are set for 7:30 p.m. June 25, July 9 and 13, Aug. 2, 13 and 18; and 1 p.m. July 24 and 30 and Aug. 11 and 16.
On a mission to end the Peloponnesian war, Lysistrata bands together the women of Greece in a pact to withhold sex until the men declare peace. As the women tantalize and tease their way to peace, a timeless story emerges of sexual politics, political power struggles, and the battle between the sexes. Funny, poignant, and just a little dirty, Lysistrata is a comic romp of more than adequate proportions.

Tickets cost $37, $32 for seniors, and $23 for students.
