Country Arts SA and The Art House Presents
by Emily Steel
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 and 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 unmistakable wit.
Euphoria was originally co-produced by Country Arts SA and State Theatre Company South Australia and supported by the Australian Government through Catalyst - Australian Arts and Culture Fund and the Australia Council for the Arts, and the Government of South Australia.
