City: New York

Additional Notes:
When it debuted, THE EFFECT took London by storm, winning BEST NEW PLAY from the UK Critics Circle. Now, award-winning director David Cromer (OUR TOWN, TRIBES) helms a new American production of this exhilarating play in the first collaboration between THE NATIONAL THEATRE, JEAN DOUMANIAN PRODUCTIONS and BARROW STREET THEATRE.

Hearts racing. Minds reeling. Knees buckling. Connie and Tristan have palpable chemistry—or is it a side effect of a new super-antidepressant? They are volunteers in a clinical trial, but their sudden and illicit romance forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work.

From Lucy Prebble, “one of the UKs hottest new playwrights” (The Telegraph), THE EFFECT takes on our pill-popping culture with humor and scintillating drama.

City: New York

Additional Notes:
When former soap opera actress Jessica Bisset is cast as Hamlet, she is both thrilled and overwhelmed by the prospect of playing the dark prince.

But as she begins rehearsals, Jessica's insecurities grow. It doesn't help that she is surrounded by doubters, from her mother, new acting coach, to... seemingly everyone else she encounters.

To add insult to injury, Jessica has managed to piss off Sir Patrick Stewart, who won't stop texting her. Jessica must ask herself, To play, or not to play...Hamlet?

A comedy about performing a tragedy
Written by William Missouri Downs
Directed by Molly Ballerstein
Stage managed by Taylor Wilkerson

Tongue in Cheek Theater presents this New York City premiere, featuring an all-female cast performing all the roles.

This wickedly clever new play uses an all-woman cast to explore questions of courage and conscience in a modern setting, managing to both spoof Shakespeare and pay homage to him in a show that moves like lightning.
