A darker cousin to Almost, Maine, John Cariani’s Love/Sick is a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays. Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this 80-minute romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, Love/Sick is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.
“Love/Sick is a group of hilarious and heartbreaking stories that will have you laughing uproariously one moment and needing to grab your tissues the next. The cast is immeasurably talented and I can’t wait for everyone to see them shine.” said Leah Pullin, Secretary and director. Mitchell Oden, Co-Founder, President, and director adds, “This play is a beautiful, heartwrenching, hilarious, and even uncomfortable at times, telling of the journey through our relationships. We see the first meeting, the honeymoon phase, the marriage, the affair, the living with children, the breakup, and the getting back together moments. You’ll love some of the moments and some of the moments will make you sick. No matter what, you will leave this show with a profound appreciation for the complexities of human love.”
