Women turn the tables in FPU fall play

The story of a mutiny on the ship of state comes to the stage in November at Fresno Pacific University.

Women in Congress is Aristophanes’ take on what would happen if women insisted on their turn at the helm of government. Set in ancient Athens the play, like many works by the Greek satirist and comic dramatist, still carries a message to modern audiences. Jules Tasca wrote the adaptation.

The curtain rises at 8 p.m. November 14-16 and at 2:30 p.m. November 17 in Ashley Auditorium on the FPU campus. Admission is $7 for general audiences and $5 for students and senior citizens. The play is a production of the FPU theater program. For reservations, call 559-453-2056.
