About This Book

I can tell the difference between who I am and a side effect. 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 off-course, 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. Following on from the critical and commercial success of Enron, The Effect offers a vibrant theatrical exploration into the human brain via the heart. It received its world premiere at the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre in November 2012, starring Billie Piper and Jonjo O'Neill. It is published here in the Modern Classics series alongside an introduction by Miriam Gillinson.

Note
This

is 
an 
account 
of

Should 
you 
be 
considering 
performing 
it 
I 
suggest 
being 
in 
touch 
with 
the 
Knight 
Hall 
Agency 
for 
the 
most 
up-to-date 
version.
The 
parts 
were 
written 
with 
speciÔ¨Āc¬†
actors 
in 
mind 
and 
when 
it 
comes 
to 
matters 
of 
nationality, 
physical 
references 
or 
the 
‚Äėtricks‚Äô¬†
the 
volunteers 
perform 
for 
each 
other, 
the 
performers 
should 
feel 
free 
to 
mould 
the 
text 
around 
themselves.
