It’s the 1940s, wartime London. We meet Lysistrata as she gathers women around her from all walks of life, they have one aim; Peace. How will they achieve this? The women plan to force the men to sign a Peace Treaty by refusing to have sex with them until they do!
That’s by no means to say they won’t make things as hard as possible to ensure they succeed; they will be teasing, they will be tempting but most importantly they will be working together to end the war.
Their biggest opponent will be the Mayor of London and his four rather hopeless policemen (who have a secret penchant for Barbershop!); they are intent on ruining her plan. With the help of Beatrice, the leader of the chorus of London women, they will fight against the chorus of London men led by Bertie - a man who doesn't quite seem to be playing with the full deck...
We will discover how it takes just one person to bring everyone together and make a difference, and we will see how much fun they can have doing so along the way!
All will be bare in love and war.
