Photo Flash: Meet the Company of David Cromer-Helmed THE EFFECT at Barrow Street Theatre
The North American premiere of playwright Lucy Prebble's award-winning new play The Effect, with direction by David Cromer, will begin previews at the Barrow Street Theatre (27 Barrow Street at 7th Avenue) on Wednesday, March 2, with an official opening night set for Wednesday, March 16th. The cast for The Effect will feature Kati Brazda (Our Town), Susannah Flood (Tribes, Love and Information), Carter Hudson (The Substance of Fire), and Steve Key (August: Osage County).

Lawson, Original Composition by Daniel Kluger, Projection Design by Maya Ciarrocchi, Fight Direction by J. David Brimmer, Casting by Cindy Tolan, C.S.A, and Production Stage Management by Richard A. Hodge.
When it debuted, The Effect took London by storm, winning Best New Play from the UK Critics' Circle. Now, award-winning director David Cromer (Our Town, Tribes) helms a new American production of this exhilarating play in the first collaboration between The National Theatre, Jean Doumanian Productions, and Barrow Street Theatre.
Hearts racing. Minds reeling. Knees buckling. Connie and Tristan have palpable chemistry-or is it a side effect of a new super-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. From Lucy Prebble, "one of the UK's hottest new playwrights" (The Telegraph), The Effect takes on our pill-popping culture with humor and scintillating drama.
