This cynical romantic comedy takes place within the confines of a clinical drug trial. Tristan and Connie meet while undergoing the anti-depressant trial and become quick friends and then more. The question is: how can they know if they’re feelings are real or simply a side-effect of their treatment. The Effect asks us to examine our relationships to the world, each other, and ourselves.

This dark comedy, set in a modest Vancouver hotel, is about Chilean refugees who struggle with the various tragicomic effects of fleeing their homeland. Laid bare in the fictionalized autobiographical details of the play are universal truths that victims and survivors of political oppression continue to experience everywhere – and about love’s power to heal.
