The Effect

Performance Dates

Connie and Tristan can’t hide how they feel around each other: Hearts thumping, sleepless nights, a slightly ill feeling of excitement. Unless their infatuation is a side-effect of the new antidepressant they’re testing in a clinical trial. As the trial’s supervising doctors try to get their subjects in line—and debate Big Pharma’s profits in medicating mood—Connie and Tristan engage body and mind with the mysteries and chemistry of love.  Stage 4 will transform into an immersive all-in design experience for this sexy and provocative pharmaceutical romance.
