Prax thinks the world is f*cked and wants to start a rebellion with her best friend Gora, who also happens to be a tap-dancing goat. Athena thinks it’s time for Zeus to step Aside. But the king of the gods won’t give up his throne so easily, and stakes his rule on the Australian Federal election; if Athena can get Prax elected she’ll have dominion over Mount Olympus, and Prax will finally be able to make a real difference.

But there’s one small problem: there aren’t many revolutionaries on hand when you want to change the game.  Everyone is worried for her, but she’s on a mission for equal pay and to dismantle the evil CCorp! She might be one voice amongst many, but that’s how it begins. Revolution is in the small steps too. 

Not Now, Not Ever: or A Parliament of Women is a modern adaptation of Assemblywomen by Aristophanes, presented by activism arts company Queen Hades. This show is a queer, gender-bending satirical take on an already uproariously funny comedy from over 2000 years ago.
