Seven student directors will take on the nine vignettes that comprise “Love/Sick,” John Cariani’s follow up to “Almost, Maine.”
“Love/Sick,” which tackles the ever-changing world of love and relationships, does justice to its complicated subject. In the play, as is often the case in real life, no relationship is normal.
In one of the vignettes, a singing telegram that is sent from a boyfriend to his girlfriend is taken as sign of love, but instead ends up being the exact opposite.
He meant to break up with her.
The play takes place in an alternate reality in the suburbs, and the nine vignettes are stand-alone pieces that don’t connect to each other in any way. Thirteen actors are performing in the play, with some of them appearing in multiple scenes.
The production will open on April 20 in the Studio Theater on the second floor of the Truax Campus, and runs through April 23. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m., except Sunday’s, which begins at 2 p.m.
Miranda Hawk organized the show, and Collin Koenig helped with the production as the lighting designer.
