Melbourne Theatre Company has welcomed Sigrid Thornton and William McInnes back to the stage for Lucy Prebble’s newest play ‘The Effect.’

The play will run at Southbank Theatre’s The Summer stage and reunites Thornton and McInnes for the first time since popular TV Drama Sea Change.

Australian actors dominate the play with Nathaniel Dean and Zahra Newman joining Thornton and McInnes in this love story with a difference.

The Effect follows the story of Connie, a young psychology student and Tristan, a dreamer from the wrong side of the tracks who meet as test volunteers in an anti-depressant drug trial.

Proclaimed as one of the most exciting talents in the country, director Leticia Caceres said the script was engaging and devoid of a dull moment.

“Moving at breakneck pace, this play has such an extraordinary visceral power, after reading it I felt out of breath,” Ms Caceres said.

She said the exciting opportunity to work with such a talented array of Australian actors was too good to pass up.

“I’m ecstatic about collaborating with four extraordinary actors and an incredible creative team to bring this work to life and create a truly moving night at the theatre,” she said.

Lucy Prebble, who is one of Britain’s most celebrated young writers, won Best New Play at the Critic’s Circle Awards in 2013.

The Effect will open from August 16 and run until September 20 with opening night on Thursday, August 21.
