Beware the Greeks bearing... Wait!!! Ooops, this is not about those Trojan Women...
And victims these wives are not. Tired of having their husbands go off to war all the time, Lysistrata leads this band of wives to take a vow to achieve peace: deprive their husbands of sex until peace reigns. The husbands, unable to dip their wicks -so to speak- suffer the deprivation of their carnal needs and attempt to have their wives break this most inconvenient vow with disastrously hilarious results.
Nothing like the Greeks, I tell you...
