The simple act of love doesn’t guarantee an easy happily-ever-after. A memory of love can be so powerful that it leaves a person craving an intimacy that got lost along the way and fighting to keep the shreds of an old connection alive. John Cariani’s whimsical, funny, poignant, and deeply human series of vignettes explore moments in relationships that are not often discussed: the second when a heart breaks, the loneliness hidden within expectations, and the miscommunication that comes with losing yourself. Love/Sick gives a glimpse into a type of love that is bruised and sick, but not without a hope that we can root for. Sharing in the levity and humor as well as the hardships, this show looks at the innate human desire to love and be loved in return. Comprised entirely of First-Year students, studying both remotely as well as on-campus, Love/Sick features Bucknell’s newest community of artists as they make their debut at Bucknell.
