The Effect

Dates: Apr 17-May 10, 2020
Run Time: TBA
Location: The Falls Theatre

Hearts racing. Minds reeling. Knees buckling. Connie and Tristan have palpable chemistry— or is it a side effect of a new antidepressant? They are volunteers in a clinical trial, but their sudden and illicit romance forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work.
