An unconventional scientist is on the cusp of a cure for a mysterious disease. But to complete her research she must find forgiveness from a family with no reason to trust her and embrace the transformative potential of her own healing. From the marvels of the modern laboratory to the inner depths of the human psyche, “Serious Adverse Effects” is an imaginative contemporary drama unfolding at a collision of medical ethics, blood memory, and forgiveness.

Workshopped in 2018 at the National Black Theatre, “Serious Adverse Effects” receives its world premiere with Rapid Lemon Productions.

Directed by Noah Silas (“Give Me Moonlight”, 2020).
