About this show

Inspired by the prologue of Aristophanes' Lysistrata, White House Wives: Operation Lysistrata! is set in 2002 in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House where Laura Bush, Lynne Cheney, Alma Powell, Cherie Blair and friends gather on the eve of the congressional vote for the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq. Capturing Aristophanes' strong anti-war message and laced with bawdy sexual humor and pointed wit, the ladies debate the pros and cons of First Lady Laura Bush's proposal to withhold sex from their husbands in order to prevent war with Iraq.
