West End Productions, voted ABQTHEMAG Best of the City Top 5 2017 kicks off its third thrilling season with Lucy Prebble’s brilliant, surreal and achingly moving play, The Effect. She subtitles this startling piece with the tag line: “A play for four people, in love and sorrow.” But what is truly startling is that Prebble has written a shocker about two pairs of star-crossed lovers, framed with a scathing examination of Big Pharma and set amid grueling clinical drug tests. Romantic? YES! Erotic? YES! Thought provoking? YES! Funny? YES! YES! YES! Adult Content, Adult Language, Nudity, Sexual Situations. Fri and Sat 7.30pm, Sun 2pm.
