Theatre Brookhaven Presents: "Liz Estrada"

Liz Estrada

It's part Greek comedy, part old-fashioned western when Theatre Brookhaven presents “Liz Estrada” March 5-9. In an Old West telling of Lysistrata, with apologies to Aristophanes, a group of heroines takes on the male-dominated old west and prove that behind every great man there is an even greater woman.

The War Between the States has finally come to an end and only the holdouts in Texas seem determined to fight on. The women in the sleepy west Texas town of Nachacoochie decide to take things into their own hands and bring their men back home for good. This fractured retelling of Aristophanes' naughty “battle of the sexes” has a heaping scoop of Texas stirred in, bringing a fresh take to the classic Greek comedy.

The play was adapted and is directed by Michael A. Robinson with co-director Performances are March 5-8 at 8 p.m., and March 8 and 9 at 2:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall. Tickets are $6 for students, staff and seniors. General admission is $8.
