The wonders and terrors of love, neuroscience and big pharma are put under the microscope and examined with charm and humour in this Critics’ Circle Best Play Award winner by Lucy Prebble: author of the likewise critically acclaimed Enron, and ITV’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl.

Tristan and Connie, two young volunteers on a clinical trial for a new antidepressant, meet and fall head over heels for each other. But is it the drug, or is it real? And does it matter?

“I can’t stop it. Something’s in me but it’s like it’s come from outside me. Like having the weather inside”
