The first-ever world-wide theatrical event for peace is coming to Manchester University on Monday, March 3rd, 2003! Theatre artists from around the planet are raising their collective voice against war by producing readings of Lysistrata in order to:
Let the Bush Administration know that we oppose their war on Iraq.
Provide events where citizens can unite to enjoy an evening of spirited, comedic theatre while raising public awareness about the volume of war opposition.
Provide a humorous entree into a healthy community dialogue: What CAN we do on a local level to stop "diplomacy by violence" in our world?
Raise money for organizations that work for peace and human rights.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Dr. Scott Strode.
