Women In Power

350 BC. Athens. The country is in political turmoil. Recent wars and alliances have left Athenians no option but to take radical action: a government of women!

Praxagora masterminds and leads a daring coup d’état, outlining her utopian vision of total equality to her crowd of cross-dressing collaborators: a world where power imbalance is eradicated and with it debt, greed and theft. But this has unintended and hilarious consequences.

Based on Aristophanes’ Assemblywomen, this raucous new musical comedy has been created by celebrated writers Wendy Cope, Jenny Eclair, Suhayla El-Bushra, Natalie Haynes, Shappi Khorsandi and Brona C Titley with dramaturgy by Clare Slater. Combined with an exceptional comic cast, and directed by Blanche McIntyre (Tonight at 8.30, Arcadia), this is a celebration of sketches with songs, dance, music and women taking the lead.
