The Effect

LUU Theatre Group
Thursday 9 - Saturday 11 March, 2017

I can tell the difference between who I am and a side effect

Two young volunteers agree to take part in a pharmaceutical drugs trial for a new anti-depressant. What they don’t plan for is to fall in love. However, the question is whether this love has naturally occurred, or is it just an effect from
the drug? If it is simply due to chemicals, does this make their feelings any less real? This witty, moving play explores questions of sanity, depression and the limits of medicine, asking what makes us who we are and how we love.
