Aristophanes’ Assemblywomen is turned into a celebration of fun-filled and silly comedy sketches, slapstick, songs, dance, dumb gags, clever gags, music and women taking the lead.

350 BC. Athens. The country is in political turmoil. Recent wars and alliances have left Athenians no option but to take radical action: a government of women!

Women storm the Assembly, dressed as men, big fake beards, big shoes and a big vision - total equality! A world where power imbalance is eradicated and with it debt, greed and theft. But this has unintended and hilarious consequences...

Age guideline: 14+

Post show talk: Wednesday 

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with no interval

To culminate our VOTE100 programme, our second OP80 co-production brings
together six leading female playwrights and a memorably funny comic cast, creating something fast, funny and fiercely political.
Laura Elliot
Programme Director

  • Nice Guy

    Tue 23 - Sat 27 Oct

    What do men mean when they describe themselves as ‘nice guys’? Written by Oxford students, Nice Guy tells a story of love and abuse. Told through a series of musical letters, this show explores the gulf between the happy picture of events we present to the world, and the grim reality behind it. The production has been shaped by conversations with Clean Slate, an Oxfordshire charity spe...

  • Shakespeare In Love

    Tue 30 Oct - Sat 3 Nov

    Winning no less than seven Oscars, the film of Shakespeare in Love, starring Judi Dench, Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow, became an instant classic. Adapted by Lee Hall for a triumphant West End run, this epic Elizabethan extravaganza is exuberant, witty, funny, and a beautiful homage to love, art, and theatre itself.
