Romantic Comedy: 2-9f, 2-9m (doubling, flexible casting)
From the back cover:
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.
"Sometimes playwright John Cariani looks at the world - actually the worlds - of love and relationships through rose-colored glasses. Just as often he views those worlds through lenses tinted a middling-to-dark-gray or maybe a jaundiced yellow. ...While poking fun at the happily-ever-after notion by means of a strong dose of happily-never-after, Cariani shoots his cockeyed valentines with a quiver full of funny lines. He knows how to keep audiences laughing while passing along disappointing news." --The Huffington Post
"...Whimsical romantic comedy. In the nine vignettes that make up [the] play, couples meet [or] break apart or learn to love each other more. ...the jokes here are easygoing and snark-free." --The New York Times
"Entertaining and fun. A satisfying dark look at this thing we call love." --BroadwayWorld.com
