Love/Sick by John Cariani
February 16 - February 25, 2017
Three Bone Theatre presents the Charlotte premiere of Love/Sick by John Cariani.
A darker cousin to Almost, Maine, John Cariani’s Love/Sick is a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays. Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, Love/Sick is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone. This Charlotte premiere production features 10 fantastic local actors and is directed by Sean Kimbro.
“Entertaining and fun. A satisfyingly dark look at this thing we call love.” —BroadwayWorld.com
Some adult themes, not recommended for those under 13.
Our community partner for this production is the 100 Love Notes Foundation
Hyong Yi’s 100 Love Notes first launched on the streets of Charlotte, North Carolina on November 21, 2015. To honor his wife, Catherine Zanga, on the one-year anniversary of her death from ovarian cancer, Hyong and his children gave strangers 100 handwritten love notes, notes that chronicled Hyong and Catherine’s life together. Three Bone Theatre will partner with the 100 Love Notes Foundation to spread Hyong’s message of love to our audiences and the broader community.
Special Event: Opening Night Book Signing
Join us on Thursday, February 16, for a special book signing with Hyong Yi following the opening night of Love/Sick. Given the magnitude of interest in Hyong Yi’s touching, humorous, and heart-breaking 3-line poems, he realized that the notes had greater purpose. Yi commissioned 17 artists to illustrate the three-line poems and the resulting art runs the gamut from watercolor to pen and ink, mosaic, and collage; from traditional paintings to digital compositions, resulting in two books: 100 Love Notes and The #100 Love Notes Project. Copies of the books will be available for purchase at the event.
This project was made possible, in part, with funding from ASC, the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
