The Effect

Written by: Lucy Prebble
Directed by: Jonathon Harding-Cooper
Presented by: Sedos

Part psychological thriller, part chemical romance, The Effect is a play that can truly challenge an audience.

After staging Lucy Prebble’s sold-out Enron to great acclaim, in 2023 Sedos returns to the writer 10 years on to tackle her follow up play about medicine and the mind.

Two young volunteers, Tristan and Connie, agree to take part in a clinical drug trial. Succumbing to the gravitational pull of attraction and love, however, Tristan and Connie manage to throw the trial off-course, much to the frustration of the clinicians involved. This funny, moving and perhaps surprisingly human play explores questions of sanity, neurology and the limits of medicine, alongside ideas of fate, loyalty and the inevitability of physical attraction.

This show contains references to mental illness, and sexual language and actions.

Date/Time: 21 - 25 March @ 7.30pm. Sat matinee @ 2.30pm
