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.

After Aulis is an award-winning black (and blue) comedy, inspired by Euripides’ Iphigenia in Aulis. Like the original, this one-woman play 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 her family responsibilities as fast as her stilettos allow.

With humour that’s as dirty as it is dark, Nia provides a ‘moving portrayal of a 21st century woman’. It’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag meets Greek tragedy… via Clapham Junction.

After Aulis was awarded the 'Fringe Event of the Year' after its premiere in Stratford-Upon-Avon in 2018...and now it’s coming to Brighton. Come and see Emmeline Braefield as Nia, in a performance which audiences have described as:

“Funny, sad and soul searching. A must-see.”

“An acerbic and absorbing contemporary take on an ancient Greek tragedy. Emmeline Braefield revels in her portrayal of the main protagonist: hilariously callous throughout, yet at times deeply compassionate; all the while playing an array of identifiable supporting characters in this must-see one-woman show.”

“Rude, sad and mad. After Aulis has it all!”

“Heartbreaking and joyful”

Written by Rowena Cooper. Starring Emmeline Braefield. After Aulis runs for 1 hour with no interval and is strictly 18+.
