“A mystic force” – The New York Times
New Ghosts Theatre Company is excited to present IPHIGENIA IN SPLOTT by Gary Owen this November at Flight Path Theatre. This Australian premiere will be directed by New Ghosts Artistic Director Lucy Clements and performed by resident IGNITE performer Meg Clarke.
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.
Inspired by the enduring Greek myth, Iphigenia in Splott drives home the high price people pay for society’s shortcomings. Effie will break your heart.
