The Effect by Lucy Prebble, directed by David Cromer, stars Kati Brazda, George Demas, Susannah Flood, Carter Hudson, and Steve Key. The show began previews at the Barrow Street Theatre (27 Barrow Street) on March 2, and opened on March 20 to rave reviews.

In The Effect, 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.

The design team for The Effect includes Marsha Ginsberg (Scenic Design), Sarah Laux (Costume Design), Tyler Micoleau (Lighting Design), Erik T. Lawson (Sound Design), Maya Ciarrocchi (Projection Design), Daniel Kluger (Original Music), Carrie Mossman (Properties Design), J. David Brimmer (Fight Direction), Cindy Tolan, C.S.A (Casting), and Richard A. Hodge (Production Stage Manager).

The Effect is produced off-Broadway by The National Theatre of Great Britain's North American wing (Tim Levy, Producer), Scott Morfee, Jean Doumanian, Tom Wirtshafter, Patrick Daly, Marc & Lisa Biales, Burnt Umber Productions, Scott M. Delman, Dominion Pictures, Dede Harris, JFL Theatricals, Roger E. Kass, Sheila Nevins, and Catherine Schreiber.
