Red Line Productions 2018 Season DISRUPTION continues with Lucy Prebble’s criticallyacclaimed play, THE EFFECT at the Old Fitz Theatre from April 18.  

The Effect is a clinical romance. Two young volunteers, Tristan and Connie, agree to take part in a clinical drug trial. Succumbing to the gravitational pull of attraction and love, however, Tristan and Connie manage to throw the trial offcourse, much to the frustration of the clinicians involved. This funny, moving and perhaps surprisingly human play explores questions of sanity, neurology and the limits of medicine, alongside ideas of fate, loyalty and the inevitability of physical attraction.

THE EFFECT is directed by Red Line Productions Artistic Director Andrew Henry and featuring Emilie Cocquerel - The Legend of Monkey (Netflix), Lion (See Saw Films); Firass Dirani- Underbelly (The Golden Mile),House Husbands, Hacksaw RidgeEmma Jackson  The Blind Giant Is Dancing (Belvoir,) Food (Belvoirand Johnny Nasser  The Ham Funeral, Home and Away.
