The play was excellent! The actors were phenonimal! The set was well designed. The lighting was very well used to define the time of day and could be considered the third character. The writing made sense and was believable. I would definitely see another play by the writer.

Amusing, in a voyeuristic way, to see a marriage going off the rails, especially when the wife is so prescient and articulate and the husband not lovable. Wonderful twists throughout. Script is totally marvelous and the acting first rate.
Quotes & Highlights
- Watch a video of Side Effects playwright, Michael Weller, discussing the play's origins.
MCC Theater’s 2008 hit Fifty Words culminated in one desperate phone call. Side Effects is the story of what happened on the other end of the line.
Hugh and Lindy’s marriage seems picture-perfect, a beacon in their microcosmic Midwestern world of dinner parties and fundraisers. But, behind closed doors—doors they can barely keep shut—they’re falling apart, and Hugh’s rising political star is suddenly imperiled.
