Nia’s found her true love, and it isn’t her fiancé.
Soon she’s going to have to make a choice, but it’s not the one you think.
Inspired by Euripides’ Iphigenia in Aulis, this one-woman show explores the ageless moral decision: how far should you sacrifice your own life for those around you? However, this Iphigenia is no innocent victim: Nia’s a sardonic, self-obsessed adulterer, and she’s running away from all her responsibilities as fast as her stilettos allow.
“Heartbreaking and joyful”
“Funny, sad, and soul-searching. A must see!”
In 2017, I was lying face-down on my kitchen floor. I was supposed to be writing a play for a university assignment. It wasn’t going well.
Then Nia stumbled on to the page in her stilettos, swearing and rhyming in couplets.
I first read After Aulis when Rowena asked me to review it from an actor’s perspective. My main feedback was that I needed to be the first person to play Nia!
