The Artswire "...fascinating, beautiful, and epic..."
Official selection of the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival.
Beautiful and new. Rotten and festering. Lack of it and crippling need for it. Its twisted conceptions and its infinite wonders. LoveSick is about love at every angle.
Benjamin and Sophia find each other in a dream. Even though they're from opposites sides of the track (he being a Poe-ish boy from the cemetery and she being a sticky-sweet girl from a toy box) their lives parallel as the dream and its minions bring them together. Through increasingly clearer memories of Benjamin's mother and Sophia's father, despite the roadblocks caused by Sally and Frank (their very intense admirers), Benjamin and Sophia learn to see their lives for what they really are and fight for what they really want.
A darkly beautiful exploration, LoveSick takes the audience on a Wonderland-like journey into the poetic sickness of love.
Also, it's funny.
