Iphigenia In Splott
Stumbling down Clifton Street at 11:30 am, 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 - until one night gives her the chance to be something more. Effie will break your heart.
Inspired by the enduring Greek myth, this urgent new play drives home the high price people pay for society's shortcomings. This critically acclaimed and award-winning new play makes its debut in New York following performances at the National Theatre, London.
