Photo Flash: The Effect by Lucy Prebble at FPCT
The Effect, written by Lucy Prebble, directed by Andrew Porter comes to Fells Point Corner Theatre, 251 S Ann St. Baltimore, MD
An insightful and incendiary look at what it means to fall in love in the psychopharmaceutical age.
"There's no such thing as side effects...They're just effects you can't sell." It's the classic story of boy meets girl. Boy likes girl and girl likes boy. They fall in love. But why? Connie and Tristan are test subjects in a clinical trial for a new antidepressant in development. Their immediate and fevered love ends up risking the integrity of the trial while they wrangle with the very origin and nature of their feelings. Are they truly meant for each other, or is it just the effect of some drug?
Fridays/Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. $24 on Fridays/Saturdays, $19 on Sundays. Tickets available at https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?ticketing=fpc
