    Sophie Melville is remarkable as Effie […] Iphigenia in Splott is not only successful in reimagining the rhetorical poetry of its Euripidean influence – it’s also an important play. The so-called chav culture has been unremittingly mocked in the media and this attempt to humanise the sort of person sneered at in Channel 5 documentaries is long overdue.
