About The Effect

Connie and Tristan meet; symptoms develop. Racing hearts. Lost appetites. Erratic emotions. Is this the frenzy of falling in love, or simply the side effects of the new anti-depressant drug they’re testing? Addiction comes hard and fast. But have the clinicians running the trial lost control? Award-winning writer Lucy Prebble places modern medicine under the microscope, examining the fallout from a collision between love and science. Her other plays include A Very Expensive Poison (Old Vic), ENRON (Chichester, Royal Court, West End) and The Sugar Syndrome (Royal Court).
