The State Theatre Company of South Australia
Written By: Emily Steel
Directed By: Nescha Jelk
Meg is busy and she'd rather not be. But sometimes she can't help it. She’s holding a town meeting and her ex-student Ethan is there. He hasn't got a job...he can't help that either. She wants to start a new festival to celebrate everything their little country town has to offer. It’s going to be called “Euphoria”, which means “happiness”. And they should be happy, shouldn’t they?
With the festival barrelling towards them, Meg and Ethan come face to face with the darkest parts of themselves as the past collides with the present.
Based on real conversations between playwright Emily Steel and regional South Australian communities, this gently moving new work from State Theatre Company and Country Arts SA will see audiences come together for a town meeting they’ll never forget.
Euphoria will go on a regional tour from April – June. Performances in: Goolwa, Renmark, Lameroo, Bordertown, Mt Gambier, Murray Bridge, Tanunda, Port Pirie, Leigh Creek, Kangaroo Island, Streaky Bay, Port Lincoln, Whyalla, Port Augusta and Burra as well as Elizabeth, Noarlunga and Golden Grove.
