Upstream Theater postpones "Iphigenia in Splott" to October

By: Upstream Theater
ST. LOUIS - March 17, 2020 - PRLog -- In keeping with the evolving response to the current public health crisis, Upstream Theater is postponing their regional premiere of IPHIGENIA IN SPLOTT by Welsh playwright Gary Owen until next season. The play is now scheduled to run from October 9-25. If single tickets or a season passport were purchased, they will honor your ticket at that time.

The Ladies and Gentlemen allowed of the motion, to spend the time in telling pleasant tales; whereupon the Queene saide: Seeing you have approved mine advice, I grant free permission for this first day, that every one shall relate, what to him or her is best pleasing.

Inspired by the Greek myth of a young woman offered as human sacrifice, Gary Owen's IPHIGENIA IN SPLOTT is a boisterous and blisteringly poetic monologue that drives home the high price people pay for society's shortcomings.

Effie is the kind of person you'd avoid eye contact with as she stumbles drunk around Cardiff's gritty Splott neighborhood at 11:30 am, spiraling through a daily mess of drink, drugs and drama followed by a hangover worse than death. You think you know her, but you really don't—because she has made a choice that you could never have expected.

While awarding the prestigious James Tait Black Award at the Edingburgh Festival, judges praised Owen's innovative writing that "makes audiences laugh, cry, and stand up to revolt"—a fitting close to our 15th season that began with THE AGITATORS and continued with our runaway rave hit WILDFIRE.
