Carroll Theatre Presents Livestreamed LOVE/SICK

Wednesday, November 4, 2020

Carroll College Theatre will be performing and simultaneously livestreaming LOVE/SICK in the FLEX Theatre on November 12-14. LOVE/SICK is a vignette play made up of nine 10-minute one act plays with different characters on the theme of relationships. In addition to choosing each play, Carroll students are directing, costuming, building props, and designing projections, sound, and lighting for the performance.

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.

Due to COVID, putting on a theatre production is even more challenging than usual. In addition to preparing to have little to no audience, the directors of these plays have also had to come up with unique ways to portray touch, such as kissing and hugging, without actually touching. Student directors have the added challenge of staging the actors so that they can remain socially distanced from one another. Add in masks and the show makes for a unique learning experience for actors, directors and audience members.

Due to rising COVID numbers in our community, this show will be livestreamed only for community members. Shows will be livestreamed from the FLEX Theatre nightly at 7:30 pm, November 12-14. Tickets are available online at BookTix. Tickets are $13 for an individual stream pass, $26 for a group stream pass, and $5 or $10 for those with current Carroll College ID.
