lace Market Theatre
The Lace Market Theatre | Tuesday 8 - Saturday 12 January  | Tickets: From £9

The Lace Market Theatre has developed a glowing reputation for their exciting and innovative productions. Their first offering of the year is Lucy Prebble’s thoughtful and moving clinical drama which examines love, depression and the limitations of neuroscience, blending psychology with humour and romance. During a clinical trial for a new antidepressant, two of the participants begin to display the telltale symptoms of love, but does the cause of their passion lie in the heart and soul, or is it the result of artificially altered neurochemicals in the brain?
