London is the centre of power, pounds and euros govern, Lysistrata is a rebel, her women are European and the male world of politicians, bankers and representatives of law seem incapable to handle the smart, fast female thinking!

As bankers and politicians try to hang on to their power to control everything, Lysistrata and the women of Europe take over the financial quarter of the City and refuse the one thing men can't do without – no, not money -  sex! ...they announce sex strike!
