Dobama Theatre presents the Midwest premiere of The Effect by Lucy Prebble, directed by Laley Lippard
Winner of the 2012 U.K. Critics' Circle Award for Best Play
Connie and Tristan are volunteers in a clinical drug trial, but when they begin a sudden and illicit romance, they must ask themselves: Is theirs a palpable chemistry — or is it a side effect of the new antidepressant being tested? As their relationship forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work, the story begins to unwind in a script that plays like a thriller. The Effect is a steamy and scintillating drama filled with humor, intelligence, and suspense.
The Effect features Olivia Scicolone, Derdriu Ring, Ananias J. Dixon, and Joel Hammer.

An ace fighter pilot's career in the sky is ended early due to an unexpected pregnancy. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns home to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away.
Everything is ready for the Israeli Independence Day party at the home of Rochale and her husband, Zvika. Well, the lawn has seen better days — and so has the family. Their grown son is home from Berlin for the holiday, and he's brought an unexpected guest. Grandmother is frail and tended to by her flamboyant, newly hired South American caretaker. As neighbors come to visit, news broadcasts on the television in the back room keep everyone on edge. While smoke from the barbecue circles in the air, fighter jets circle in the sky. And as food is passed, drinks are poured, and the good old songs sung, conflicts are reignited that cannot be ignored.
