Description

For the romantic, the cynic, and the sick of heart – Love/Sick is a play about the kind of love you won’t find in fairy tales. Dark, funny and heartbreaking in equal measure, happy endings are far from guaranteed. John Cariani’s collected short plays sharply cut across the full spectrum of romantic relationships, from young love to old flames. There’s no sterile, airbrushed prince and princess here – Love/Sick is about flawed, messy people with problems they can’t always solve, but who will fight like hell to make it work anyway.

A razor-sharp and thought provoking comic take on the realities of relationships, with a talented cast doing full justice to an excellent script. A great way to start your day at the Fringe - strongly recommended!

Darkly comic and richly human portrayal of complexities of relationships. Engaging performances from this new company. Highly recommended - well worth the early start.

JOHN Cariani’s eclectic series of short plays about love – in all its stages – are brought to life in Hyacinth Theatre’s latest production.

Each vignette explores how love makes us do crazy things, including taking up elaborate food metaphors or sending singing telegrams. There are seven scenarios in all and the total running time is just under an hour.
