(A play by Matthew Klippenstein, who writes:)

This is part of UBC’s Classics Week, so it’s based on an old Greek comedy (”the assemblywomen”) wherein a bunch of women disguise themselves as men, enter the Assembly (Athenian Parliament) and vote themselves absolute power. And since it’s a Greek comedy, it’s got the three C’s: a chorus, cross-dressing, and coarse humour. All fortified with three musical numbers!

Dates: Jan. 27-30 (Saturday through Tuesday)
Time: 8 p.m. (with a 3 p.m. performance on Jan 28)
Cost: $10 (I think)

Show: “Women on top”

Plot: The women of ancient Athens disguise themselves as men and vote themselves absolute power. Hilarity ensues

Where: Dettwiller Theatre, in the Dettwiller Pavilion of the UBC Hospital, just south of the main building (Google map)

Parking: Hospital parking is expensive, but there’s free parking after 6 p.m. all along Western Parkway just south of University Boulevard. (See map.)
