The Effect by Lucy Prebble

27 May 2022 19:30 - 22:00

For one night only in Sheffield, Midland Players present The Effect, by Lucy Prebble.

In a radical departure from the usual amateur dramatic fare, Midland Players enter the world of adult drama with their upcoming production of 'THE EFFECT', written by Lucy Prebble.

Previously presented at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre, this acclaimed modern work tackles serious issues with humour and sensitivity. The play asks if there really is any such thing as love, or if science has now proved that to be no more than chemical exchanges taking place in the brain.

When two young people agree to take part in the trial of a new anti-depressant drug, can they trust the powerful attraction they feel toward each other, or even the truth of what they are being told by the two scientists conducting the trial? - themselves a former couple, whose feelings are unexpectedly put to the test!

This is a show not to be missed, if you like your drama thought-provoking!
