Brenton Langbein Theatre
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. 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?’
Informed by real conversations between playwright Emily Steel and regional South Australian communities, Euphoria is a gently moving new work that will see audiences come together for a town meeting they’ll never forget.
Some mature themes, strong coarse language and adult themes, including the discussion of mental health issues. Study guides and resources will be available to download from State Theatre Company South Australia Education page on the website prior to the show. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Ministry of the Arts' Catalyst - Australian Arts and Culture Fund
