The show will run in Scott Studio Theatre (806. N Turner Ave.) October 5-7 at 7:30 p.m. and October 8 at 2:00 p.m. General admission tickets are $8, and $5 for non-Hastings College students and seniors. Tickets are free to Hastings College students, faculty and staff. Reservations can be made in advance at tickets@hastings.edu.

Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, “Love/Sick” is an 80-minute romp that 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. The show does contain mature subject matter.
