No peace, no sex. Yeah right.

After successfully making its debut last year, the Hyderabad Theatre Festival is now in its second outing. Titled the Hyderabad Theatre & Short-Film Festival, it has been scheduled for 19th to 25th July, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. A total of 7 plays and 6 short films will be screened during the week-long festival.

The last day of the theatre festival will feature a 90-minute classic play staged by Four Quartets, and called "Lysistrata". The play has been directed by Kashif Ali.

Lysistrata is the 3rd and concluding play of the War And Peace series written by Aristophanes, and was not produced till 10 years later than its predecessor, the 'Peace,' viz. in 411 BC.

It's the 21st year of the Peloponnesian War, and there seems as little prospect of peace as ever. A desperate state of things demands a desperate remedy, and the poet suggests a burlesque solution of the difficulty. Lysistrata convinces the women of Greece to withhold sexual privileges from their husbands and lovers as a means of forcing the men to negotiate peace.

The play is an adult comedy, thanks to its expose of sexual relations in a male-dominated society, and for its use of both double entendre and explicit obscenities.

Samahaara is a non-profit cultural society based in Hyderabad. For the last 6 years, it has been making efforts at taking theatre to the young minds of Hyderabad. The members include young working professionals and students.
