‘Love/Sick’ portrays dark, amusing look at romance

The UWL Department of Theatre Arts will present “Love/Sick” by John Cariani. “Love/Sick” is a look at what happens after we fall in the love and the endearing muck that follows. The production runs at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 5-6, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday Nov. 6-7 in Frederick Theatre, Morris Hall, 16th and State streets. 

“Love/Sick” is a collection of nine whimsical and slightly twisted vignettes on love, marriage and grocery-store serendipity. Set on a Friday night in an alternative suburban reality, it explores the pain and joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, “Love/Sick” is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.   

Ticket sales begin Monday, Nov. 1. Box office hours run from 1-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour before the show in the Center for the Arts. Due to a technical issue with the AudienceView ticketing system, patrons will not be able to purchase tickets online for “Love/Sick.” Tickets are $8 for UWL students, $18 for other students and seniors; and $20 for others.
