The Battle of the Sexes
The Battle of the Sexes was a fast-paced romp based on Aristophanes' Greek play, The Poet and the Women. It was performed outdoors at Scar Top in Barnard Castle and at a number of indoor venues around the dale.
"(The audience) had been invited to the preview of The Castle Players' latest venture, innocently described as a Greek play, a one-act farce. All they knew before the start was that it was outrageous, loud, and very bawdy. They didn't know it was funny, energetic, and hugely entertaining." The Darlington and Stockton Times 1 February 1997
