WELLESLEY COLLEGE THEATRE

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike FlyerMiddle-aged siblings Vanya and Sonia share a home in Bucks County, PA, where they bicker and complain about the circumstances of their lives. Suddenly, their movie-star sister, Masha, swoops in with her new boy toy, Spike. Old resentments flare up, eventually leading to threats to sell the house. Also on the scene are sassy maid Cassandra, who can predict the future, and a lovely young aspiring actress named Nina, whose prettiness somewhat worries the imperious Masha. 

Tickets: $15 general admission, $10 seniors and students, $5 Wellesley faculty & staff

WELLESLEY COLLEGE THEATRE

Lysistrata

Lysistrata by Aristophanes

Directed by Diego Arciniegas 


Fri May 6 and Sat May 7 @ 7pm

Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre

The women of Greece refuse to have sex with their husbands until they put an end to the war. 

 In this raucous, bawdy, comedy, Aristophanes takes pot shots at Ancient Greece's most formidable enemy,, the Spartans, even as he delights in hilarious comic satire lampooning marital sex.  Originally acted by men wearing phalli (yes, large penises!), a cast of Wellesley actors take their turn exploring cross (and re-cross) dressing, and sexual and ethnic stereotyping.  It's a treat for the whole family (well, almost)!
