BY GARY OWEN
A special one-off performance of Gary Owen’s award-winning play, performed by Sophie Melville.
“WHAT GETS ME THROUGH IS KNOWING I TOOK THIS PAIN, AND SAVED ALL OF YOU FROM SUFFERING THE SAME.”
Stumbling down Clifton Street at 11:30am drunk, Effie is the kind of girl you’d avoid eye contact with, silently passing judgement. We think we know her, but we don’t know the half of it. Effie’s life spirals through a mess of drink, drugs and drama every night, and a hangover worse than death the next day – till one night gives her the chance to be something more. Effie will break your heart.
Inspired by the enduring Greek myth, Iphigenia in Splott drives home the high price people pay for society’s shortcomings.
