Screen Shot 2017 03 30 at 11.57.35 amLysa King is nineteen and angry. After spending a year away from her small town, experiencing a powerful uprising of her own political voice, and the protests of women all over the world, Lysa has returned to discover that revolution seems to be happening everywhere but home.

Her arrival coincides with the biggest weekend on the annual calendar, the War Weekender, a weekend-long celebration of the town’s most prized citizens, the local footy team. Unable to stay silent, Lysa decides it’s time to ensure that her voice is heard, and armed with a flag, a manifesto, and the key to the footy club’s change rooms she plans to bring revolution about by any means necessary.

Inspired by Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, Christian lands us in the present with this hilarious, messy, and glitter-filled response to the power of women globally.


PROD HISTLysa and the Freeborn Dames was first produced by La Boite and QUT Creative industries premiering at the Roundhouse Theatre on July 21, 2018.
