Coming to Oldham Coliseum for THREE NIGHTS ONLY
September 25th - 27th.
Two young volunteers, Tristan and Connie, agree to take part in a clinical drug trial. Succumbing to the gravitational pull of attraction and love, however, Tristan and Connie manage to throw the trial off-course, much to the frustration of the clinicians involved.
This funny, moving and perhaps surprisingly human play explores questions of sanity, neurology and the limits of medicine, alongside ideas of fate, loyalty and the inevitability of physical attraction.
Under 26s £7 (limited availability)
Beginning with an introductory performance at 7pm by Wild Things Drama
Wild Things Drama runs performing arts classes for young people and has schools in Oldham, Manchester and Denshaw. Wild Things aims to provide inclusive drama education for young people to study at their own pace, and understands that everyone learns differently.
This specially devised 15 minute response to 'The Effect' will be directed by Lily Bills, a member of Wild Things, and will be performed prior to the performance all three nights.
