Iphigenia in Splott

Smock Alley Theatre, Monday 3rd December - Saturday 15th December 2018

Following the successful run of the Irish Times Theatre Award winning play Disco Pigs & Sucking Dublin by Enda Walsh in December 2017, Reality:Check Productions return once again to Smock Alley Theatre’s Boys’ School for the Irish premiere of this incredible story.

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.
