Given the situation around COVID-19, Country Arts SA and State Theatre Company South Australia have made the difficult decision to cancel all sales for the forthcoming 2020 season of Euphoria until further notice.
In the interest of public safety, we consider this the most responsible course of action for our patrons, artists and the community. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Country Arts SA and State Theatre Company South Australia present Euphoria by Emily Steel
Commissioned by Country Arts SA
A Country Town. A Festival. A local tragedy and a town that doesn’t talk. This tale of good days, bad days and everything in between catapults us right into the heart of this little town where everyone knows everyone, and where Ethan is hit by his past as Meg struggles with the present. As the festival unfolds, Meg and Ethan’s worlds collide as the community comes together for an event they’ll never forget.
This brand new play is a rich and heart-warming story from award-winning South Australian playwright Emily Steel, bringing regional voices to the fore and an entire town to life with authenticity and unmistakeable wit.
Two years in the making, Euphoria has been developed in consultation with regional South Australian communities.
We’re proud to have Chris Burns; SA Mental Health Commissioner as our Ambassador.
Director: Nescha Jelk
Set & Costume Designer: Meg Wilson

Euphoria has been developed over the past two years in consultation with communities across regional South Australia. As part of the community engagement and research, playwright Emily Steel spent time as artist in residence in Berri, Whyalla, Mount Gambier, Streaky Bay, Ceduna, Lameroo, Bordertown and Burra, connecting with people from across each community to talk about the joys and challenges of living in rural and remote areas.
“Euphoria provides a unique insight into the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness in rural communities. The play opens up this very important conversation” Chris Burns; SA Commissioner for Mental Health and Ambassador for Euphoria.
