Love/Sick Opens March 5

other-LS.jpgCentral Methodist University and The Little Theatre will soon stage their first play of the spring, as John Cariani’s Love/Sick opens on March 5.

A darker cousin to Almost, Maine, 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.

Myriah Araiza, ’19, is directing the production, which is scheduled to debut at 4:30 p.m. on March 5 before showing at 7:30 p.m. on the 6th and 7th, and wrapping up at 1:30 p.m. on March 8. The House opens 30 minutes before curtain time on each show.

Each of the nine short skits will be portrayed by a pair of Central actors, in the following order:

Obsessive/Impulsive – Emily Braden and Katelyn Watts
The Singing Telegram – Kayla Wainscott as Louise and Dominique Jordan as Singing Telegram Man
What?!? – Zach Barnes as Ben and Rob Brown as Andy
The Answer – Catherine Barnard as Celia and Rob Brown as Keith
Uh-Oh – Jenny Barnett as Sarah and Zach Barnes as Bill
Forgot – Emily Braden as Jill and Zach Barnes as Kevin
Lunch/Dinner – Katelyn Watts as Kelly and Rob Brown as Mark
Where Was I? – Emily Braden as Liz and Hailey Sage as Abbie
Destiny – Kona Asi as Emily and Dominique Jordan as Jake
