Written with bawdy abandon and unparalleled wit, Lysistrata is at once a powerful indictment of the insanity of war, and a sexual comedy without peer in the history of theater. That it remains both popular and accessible to the contemporary reader proves that the issues and themes that make compelling art never grow outdated.

Douglass Parker's translation presents the play in contemporary language for the modern audience. As The New York Times noted, " Parker has a range that can encompass the gravity of Aristophanes as well as the delirious and scabrous wit."
