Connie is a psychology student. Tristan is a charming drifter. Both have signed up to a clinical trial for a new antidepressant super-drug. Sealed off from the outside world, the attraction between Connie and Tristan turns into deeper feelings as their doses get stronger.
They’ve been warned of side effects – can they trust their feelings, or is this just a chemical romance?
THE EFFECT premiered to great acclaim at London’s National Theatre in late 2012 winning the UK Critic’s Circle Award for Best New Play for young playwright Lucy Prebble.

MA 15+: Recommended for mature audiences only. Strong adult themes, language and sexual references.



Connie – Katherine Williams

Tristan – Sam Barson

Dr Lorna James – Lindy Yeates
