Connie and Tristan are falling in love—or is it just a side effect of a new antidepressant? In this scene, the two drug trial volunteers’ illicit romance forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work. This play raises questions about the reliability of love, medication, and our own brains.
This scene was presented as part of The George Washington University's Department of Theatre and Dance's production, "Intermission: Students on the MainStage."

Comedy of errors
Director: Matt Wilson
Two sets of identical twins separated at birth, suddenly in the same city, create havoc wherever they go. Director Matthew R. Wilson brings Shakespeare’s poetry and slapstick to life in a physical theatre extravaganza: False accusations, theft, madness, demon possession, wrongful beatings, near-seduction and an arrest—all in one day!
Mr. Burns: a post electric play
Director: Shirley Serotsky
The world as we know it is over, and as group of survivors pass the time around a campfire, they piece together the plot of “Cape Fear” from “The Simpsons,” entirely from memory. But as the apocalypse drags on, memory falters and live entertainment based on pop culture becomes mythology, of a sorts.
Director: Jodi Kanter
Brian Friel’s modern classic is a powerful account of nationhood, which sees the turbulent relationship between England and Ireland play out in one quiet community.
"As a documentary parable about colonialism, it is, sad to say, timeless—and this ardent student production does justice to the unjust story." - John Stoltenberg, DC Metro Arts.
