The Effect: Part One With David Cromer, Lucy Prebble and Barrow Street Theatre

The Effect: Part One With David Cromer, Lucy Prebble and Barrow Street Theatre

When it debuted, The Effect took London by storm, winning Best New Play from the UK Critics’ Circle. Now, award-winning director David Cromer (Our Town, Tribes) helms a new American production of this exhilarating play in the first collaboration between The National Theatre, Jean Doumanian Productions, and Barrow Street Theatre. What makes this so exciting is this the first collaboration between an Off or Off Off Broadway Theatre and the National.

Hearts racing. Minds reeling. Knees buckling. 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 cast of The Effect including Kati Brazda (Our Town), Susannah Flood (Tribes, Love and Information), Carter Hudson (The Substance of Fire), and Steve Key (August: Osage County); as well as National Theatre America producer Tim Levy; Barrow Street Theatre’s Scott Morfee and Tom Wirtshafter; Jean Doumanian and Patrick Daly.

The Effect will play the Barrow Street Theatre (27 Barrow Street) with previews beginning March 2, 2016 and an opening night set for March 16.

In this video we talk to the Barrow Street Theatre’s Scott Morfee,  playwright Lucy Prebble and director David Cromer who also stars as an actor in “Billions,” to learn more about this fascinating collaboration.
