November 5-December 5, Hyde Park Theatre

Sick is an uproarious look at a family of germ-ophobes who have severe allergies to everything from Cheez-Whiz and cleaning supplies to city air. As prisoners inside their vacuum-sealed home and garbed in non-allergic clothing, they live each day in terror that a stray mold spore or chemical will sneak into their lives. When Dad brings home one of his graduate students, the family’s fear crescendos– with chaotic comedic consequences.
