Quirky Comedy On Love’s Dual Nature Coming
to LTCC in March
South Lake Tahoe, CA—The dual sides of love and
relationships get a comedic treatment in the play Love/Sick by John Cariani, presented by the Theatre Department at
Lake Tahoe Community College from March 17-26 in LTCC’s Duke Theatre. Quirky, humorous, and poignant, Love/Sick is a darker cousin to Cariani’s play Almost, Maine, which was a
big hit for LTCC’s Theatre Department a few years ago.
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 fast-paced romp explores the pain and joy that comes with being
in love. While each play contains different characters and storylines, put them
all together and they chart the journey of a relationship from the first
meeting to the end - or the beginning again. Full of imperfect lovers and
dreamers, Love/Sick is an unromantic
comedy for the romantic in everyone.
local actors make up the nine couples featured in Love/Sick, including Honora Bowen, Tessa Dixon, Carolin Hansa,
Conrad Iacobellis, Thomas Lopez, Karoline Magee, Kurt Munger, Aletha Nelligan,
Ginger Nicolay-Davis, Kristian Peterson, Brett Robinson, Joanie San Agustin,
Amanda Sanderson, Elliott Smart, and Ashley Wallick, all of South Lake Tahoe;
Fritz Schlottman of Dayton, NV; and Dave Anderson of Gardnerville, NV.
