Coming Soon: “The Effect” by Pangdemonium

December 24, 2015


Event: “The Effect” presented by Pangdemonium
Venue: Victoria Theatre
Run: 25th Feb – 13th Mar 2016

2016 is Pangdemonium’s “Season of Love”, and they will be kicking things off with the Lucy Prebble play “The Effect”.

Official synopsis:

“Set against the backdrop of a clinical drug trial, this dark and edgy romance revolves around two young volunteers, beautiful psychology student, Connie (Nikki Muller) and charming nomad, Tristan (Linden Furnell).

Sealed off from the real world and monitored by two bickering doctors (Adrian Pang and Tan Kheng Hua), Connie and Tristan find themselves increasingly attracted to each other.

As the doses continue to double, so do their feelings.

Are their emotions real or merely an induced side effect?

Written by Critic’s Circle Award-winning Lucy Prebble (ENRON, The Sugar Syndrome), The Effect breaks down love to all of its composite sensations and questions how much control we really have over what we feel.

This existential and compelling piece has been called “deeply moving, both in its depiction of the giddy wonder of love, and also in its account of the terrifying wasteland of depression itself” by The Daily Telegraph.

A brilliant examination of the human brain via the heart, The Effect explores questions of sanity, the ethical minefield of neuroscience, today’s pill-popping culture and the nature of this thing we call “LOVE”.”

The play stars Linden Furnell, Nikki Muller, Tan Kheng Hua, and Adrian Pang.

Play Duration: Approx. 2hrs (with 15mins interval)
