The Effect

By Lucy Prebble


Connie and Tristan have chemistry. Their pulses charge, their pupils dilate, their hearts race. But, as volunteers on a drugs trial for a new antidepressant, is their attraction real or merely a side effect? And as their feelings grow, and the dosages increase, will their doctors be able to control it?

See what happens when love strikes in this neuro-biological romance as it explores what it’s like to feel love on mind-altering medication.

Rough Magic presented the Irish premiere of this award-winning play by Lucy Prebble, writer of the smash-hit ENRON, in the Project Arts Centre from 22nd March to 1st April 2017.
