Lysistrata Jones

Lysistrata Jones




A modern retelling of Aristophanes' comedy Lysistrata.


Story:

The Athens University basketball team hasn't won a game in 30 years, but when spunky transfer student Lysistrata Jones dares the squad's fed-up girlfriends to stop "giving it up" until their boyfriends win a game, their legendary losing streak could be coming to an end. Lyssie J. and her girl-power posse give this Greek classic comedy a sexy, modern twist and take student activism to a whole new level.
