and featuring
Emilie Cocquerel – The Legend of Monkey (Netflix), Lion (See Saw Films)
Firass Dirani – Underbelly (The Golden Mile), House Husbands, Hacksaw Ridge
Emma Jackson – The Blind Giant Is Dancing (Belvoir,) Food (Belvoir)
and Johnny Nasser – The Ham Funeral, Home and Away 

The Effect is a clinical romance. 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.
