About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

I can tell the difference between who I am and a side effect.

During a trial for a new pharmaceutical drug, Tristan and Connie fall madly in love, but soon realize that their feelings aren't necessarily their own.

In an increasingly cynical world, can love be anything but a chemical signal in the brain?

Lucy Prebble’s critically acclaimed play The Effect is a deadly concoction of science and romance. Directed by Artistic Director Dan Jones, this inventive play asks how our treatment of mental illness plays into our idea of self? 

 Please ensure you arrive before 7pm to collect your tickets.

Mae Tristan a Connie yn cwympo dros eu pen a'u clustiau mewn cariad â'i gilydd yn ystod cyfnod treialu cyffur fferyllol newydd, ond maent yn sylweddoli efallai nad yw eu teimladau yn perthyn iddynt.

Mewn byd sy'n fwyfwy sinigaidd, a all cariad fod yn fwy nag arwydd cemegol yn yr ymennydd?

Mae drama boblogaidd Lucy Prebble yn gymysgedd gwych o wyddoniaeth a rhamant. Mae'r ddrama arloesol hon, a gyfarwyddwyd gan y Cyfarwyddwr Artistig, Dan Jones, yn ystyried sut y mae'r ffordd rydym yn trin salwch meddwl yn cyd-fynd â'n syniad o hunaniaeth.

About The Other Room Theatre @ Porter's

A world-class artistic venue and producing house on the periphery of Cardiff's bright lights and beating heart, The Other Room pushes the boundaries of intimate, captivating and compelling indie theatre. Here, internationally acclaimed fringe works go toe-to-toe with head-turning Welsh incarnations; local shining-lights share the stage with better-known-stars; the audience is often as much a witness to the action as it is a participant in it... In The Other Room's tardis-like 47 seater space, artistic expression is the norm and risk taking is embraced. Expect mercurial, beautiful and unavoidably immersive set constructions. Expect gripping drama. Expect an intensity of live experience quite unlike anything you'll have experienced in Wales (let alone Cardiff). Although annexed to Porter's (a true locals' favourite that also comes thoroughly recommended by Wriggle), you'd be forgiven for having missed this unique pub theatre (it's hard to spot if you're not on a hidden-gem hunt). After crossing the threshold to The Other Room, though, you'll understand how it's simply unmissable to those in the know. **Thanks to Kieran Cudlip & Aenne Pallasca for the lovely photos**

How to claim

Purchase your ticket through Wriggle, then arrive at Porter's Bar before the show starts at The Other Room and grab yourself a drink (you'll likely miss some theatrical amazingness if you're not there on time). You can take your drink into the hidden theatre with you, so - when you hear the curtain call - join the queue, introduce yourself as a Wriggler with a smile and show your unique Wriggle code to the attendant to gain entrance. Remember to buy the actors a drink afterwards if you loved the play, tell your friends how awesome The Other Room Theatre is and leave feedback for your chance to win £20 credit. Tell all your friends, and Wriggle responsibly. The performance running times vary, check our website for full details. Due to the design of the space at The Other Room and to prevent interruption to the experience of other audience members, if you leave the theatre for any reason during the performance you will not be granted re-entry. Please be respectful of the Front of House team should this situation arise. Please ensure you arrive in good time for the beginning of the performance. There will be a Front of House announcement 10 minutes before the advertised start time of the performance. Latecomers will not be permitted entry. Once purchased, money cannot be refunded unless a performance is cancelled or less than half the performance takes place. The Theatre regrets that in case of missed performances refunds or exchanges cannot be offered. The Other Room is an accessible space. If you are a wheelchair user, please email the theatre at info@otherroomtheatre.com to let us know in advance. This is so they can provide you with the best customer service possible and ensure you have an enjoyable experience visiting us by keeping their Front of House Team up to date.
