Lysistrata was adapted for Bard on the Beach in 2018 by Lois Anderson and Jennifer Wise. In this article, Anderson discusses how the production, which was performed in Vanier Park on the unceded traditional territory of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish nations, had to open up to include the voice of Musqueam actor Quelemia Sparrow.
