Our Review 4 / 5

Iphigenia in Splott is now cancelled at Lyric Hammersmith. 

“What is gonna happen, when we can’t take it anymore?”

Stumbling down the street drunk at 11.30am Effie is the kind of girl you avoid making eye contact with. You think you know her, but maybe you don’t know the half of it.

Effie’s life is 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, Gary Owen’s powerful and ever more relevant monodrama returns to London in this critically acclaimed production directed by Rachel O’Riordan.

Contains strong language and themes of an adult nature.

Our Review of Iphigenia in Splott


If you've ever wondered what an Alan Bennett Talking Heads monologue delivered by Matt Lucas's 'Vicky Pollard' or Catherine Tate's 'Lauren' would sound like, Gary Owen's hard-hitting and in-your-face play has you covered. I make this comparison in no way to belittle or trivialise the text, instead commend a dramatic device that allows a serious message to be conveyed in a fittingly modern way. Read more
