A four-week trail in a pharmaceutical research facility brings together two human guinea pigs: Connie, a psychology student, and the easy-going Tristan, who funds his peripatetic lifestyle by renting his body and brain to science.
They will be locked up here for four weeks with no outside contact, no phones, no alcohol, no cigarettes and no sex.
Definitely no sex.
Tristan’s attempts at flirting with Connie are rebuffed until the drug being administered takes hold. They develop passionate feelings for each other, then a clawing need. But what how much of it is real and how much is the dopamine rush produced by the drug they’re taking? And given that love is supposed to be a chemical thing anyway, does it matter anyway?
Andrew Henry directs an intimate new production of British writer Lucy Prebble’s play. Emilie Cocquerel, Emma Jackson, Firass Dirani and Johnny Nasser star.
