Lysa and the Freeborn Dames is Aristophanes crossed with a girl group power-ballad served with a plate of your Grandma’s best CWA scones.

In a small rural town, somewhere in Australia, it doesn’t matter what kind of person you are – it matters what team you barrack for. The War Weekender is the social event of the year, where local towns unite in the ultimate battle – a football game and mighty booze-fest. In Lysa’s small town, the 2017 War Weekender changes everything. Held on the 21st of January, the day women all over the world amassed to protest a Trump-led free world, Lysa rallies the women in surrounding towns to stage an epic protest in solidarity with their international sisters and allies. The thing is, only three girls show up…

Led by a fierce female chorus of women who fling us through the past in order to prove that the future really is female, Claire Christian’s fury-fuelled dramedy is inspired by the original battle of the sexes, Aristophanes’ Lysistrata.
