Iphigenia in Splott

"What gets me through is knowing I took this pain, and saved all of you from suffering the same."

Stumbling drunk down Clifton Street at 11.30am, Effie is the kind of girl you'd avoid eye contact with. 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.

Gary Owen's powerful adaptation of the enduring Greek myth drives home the high price people pay for society's shortcomings.
