The Smiths Station Theatre Department is at it again. This time, with “Love/Sick,” a play by John Cariani. It’s funny and some of the characters are heartwarmingly optimistic as they search for love. The play is a series of nine short plays set in suburbia.

“It’s about the cycle of love and how to get through it,” said SSHS Theatre student Andrew Brasfield.

Those are certainly the right words to describe what you’ll see at the show, as sometime, love hurts. One scene includes a girl expecting to be greeted at her door by her date. Instead, she gets a singing telegram and conflict ensues. In another scene, we see a couple with different views on how quickly a relationship should progress and get a laugh when he attempts to say “I love you.” Want a wedding? This play has it, or does it? Sometimes a couple gets cold feet on their wedding day. Another scene includes a married couple that needs to bring some fun back to the relationship. Her idea of fun may not be his. Then, what’s for lunch? A couple discusses their own exciting lunches without each other.

Brasfield said the theatre department has been rehearsing since early January for the performance, and this is one you won’t want to miss.

Show dates are Feb. 28, March 1 and 2 at 7 p.m. ET at the Smiths Station High School Theatre. The show starts at 7 p.m. ET and doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $7.
