The next theatrical production is headed to the stage at Lake Tahoe Community College’s Duke Theatre. Running Friday, March 17, through Sunday, March 26, John Cariani’s “Love/Sick” focuses on the multiple aspects of love and relationships in a comedic manner.

“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,” states a press release from LTCC.

The comedy is comprised of nine abnormal, yet hilarious, short plays all set in an “alternate suburban reality.”

“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,” continues the release.

Eighteen actors from the Lake Tahoe region — most of which call South Shore home — make up the “Love/Sick” cast.

Performances are held Friday and Saturday, March 17-18, and Thursday through Saturday, March 23-25, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday March 19 and March 26 at 2 p.m.

General admission tickets are available for $10, and $5 for seniors, large groups, children under age 13 and students with a valid ID.

“High school and college students are invited to enjoy ‘Love/Sick’ for free at the Thursday, March 23 performance at 7:30 p.m. Present a valid student ID at the box office on the night of the performance for a free ticket as long as they are available. These free tickets are only available the night of the performance,” concludes the release.

The LTCC bookstore sells tickets in advance Mondays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tickets may also be purchased at the theatre box office one hour prior to scheduled shows.
