Iphigenia in Splott

Dates: 23 Mar - 04 Apr

Show Time: 7:45pm

Tickets: €16-18 (Previews €14)

Iphigenia in Splott premiered at the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, 2015 in a production by Ireland’s own Rachel O’Riordan before transferring to the National Theatre, London, UK in 2016 to wide critical acclaim.

Stumbling down the 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.

Following a successful Irish premiere in December 2018 with Reality:Check Productions, this newly reimagined Iphigenia in Splott returns for a national tour.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…
