Meg is battling with a mental health illness and she’s afraid. Afraid she’ll meet someone in the supermarket and they will know. Ethan is sick of living in a town where you can’t take a shit without it being reported in the local paper, and Jimmy… well everyone knows Jimmy’s made of Teflon and his dad owns half the town so he’s never had anything to worry about.
In 2018 playwright Emily Steel spent time in regional South Australia as an Artist-in-Residence, meeting with communities to share experiences and unpick the joys and challenges of country life. From Streaky Bay to Bordertown, conversations in pop up tea rooms stirred deep thoughts and dust storms brewed as talk turned to water, services and health.
Written by Emily Steel, Euphoria is commissioned and produced by Country Arts SA following research and many cups of teas with communities.
Touring to Bordertown, Lameroo, Berri, Streaky Bay, Ceduna and Whyalla 14-24th October, 2019.
Booking information coming soon.Read More on The Dirt
