Breakdown

LOVE/SICK is a ten-play cycle about love and loss—but mostly loss. Each play has its own arc and tells the story of a couple at a crossroads in their relationship. Since each relationship is more advanced than the previous relationship, a larger arc emerges, and the individual plays work together to chronicle the lifecycle of a typical relationship, from meeting through divorce…and afterwards.

F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, “The sentimental person thinks things will last—the romantic person has a desperate confidence that they won’t.”

The characters in LOVE/SICK are romantics. They are desperately confident that things are going to go bad. But they fight like hell to make sure that they don’t. LOVE/SICK is a romantic play. It is not a sentimental play. LOVE/SICK is full of highs and lows. Soar. Crash. Repeat. LOVE/SICK is a tragedy - a very funny tragedy.

Seeking: 2 Men & 2 Women.
Want a diverse cast. All and any ethnicity. Four strong, funny, truth-based actors (to play characters in their late 30s/early 40s) who can create a variety of characters without relying on caricature. Need to be vulnerable and transformational. Sense of humor is a must, but so is a sense of grounded-ness. They are honest, true, smart, and curious, tho sometimes guarded. Not at all cynical. The cast should reflect the increasing diversity in America and its suburbs.

Tracks for each of the 4 actors will be decided once casting is complete.
