Young SixSix presents a bold reimagining of the Ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata. Transported to the battleground of Bristol’s streets, it explores the complex relationships between a group of young people trying to figure out their place in the world.
Devised by the company, with support from Bristol poet Vanessa Kisuule as writer in the room, this restless retelling looks at the tragedy of violence and the battle for young people to defend their own bodies and futures.
