The Effect by Lucy Prebble

Our next Play-Reading group will meet to explore Lucy Prebble's moving play The Effect. The Effect premiered in 2012 to great acclaim at the National Theatre, with a production directed by Rupert Goold. The story follows two volunteers, Connie and Tristan, as they partake in a mood-enhancing clinical drug trial.

Led by The REP's Education Officer, Ben Cain, this play-reading group allows you to explore the play with fellow participants, discussing personal responses to the story and themes. Ben says, 'To me, The Effect is a hugely exciting play. It manages to balance comedy with tragedy, whilst questioning the validity of a blossoming romance at the heart of the story.
