South Puget Sound isn’t exactly brimming with Ancient Greek theater, so here’s a great chance to see two plays in the one weekend. The Greek Theatre Program at Evergreen State College in Olympia is mounting Euripides’ tragedy “The Trojan Women,” about the slavery and misery that awaits the wives of soldiers in the Trojan Wars, and Aristophanes’ “Lysistrata,” set in the conflicted end of the Athenian empire and its democracy, as Lysistrata and her female cohorts boycott sex until their men agree to their demands.

Both dramas date from the 5th century B.C., and are fully produced with costumes and sets.

“The Trojan Women”: 7:30 p.m. June 2, 2:30 p.m. June 4 and 5. “Lysistrata”: 7:30 p.m. June 3, 4 and 5. $10/$5 students, and $15/$7 for both shows on June 4 and 5. Evergreen College Experimental Theater, 2700 Evergreen Parkway NW, Olympia. 360-867-6833, www.brownpapertickets.com, www.evergreen.edu/expressions
