Boy, is John is lonely–so lonely that he resorts to dressing up a pillow in a bra and panties and pretending it's his one true love. Then (joy of all joys!) he sees Jane. They fall for each other hard and rush through courting, right into sex, then marriage, a child and ultimately disgust with the whole shebang. Love Clump is a relationship speed-through–thirteen sharp scenes that trace a relationship from its ecstatic beginnings right on through to an undesired but ultimate acceptance of the foibles of a partner. Love Clump reveals both the earth-shattering joys and the earth-shattering sadnesses of a lifetime's worth of love.

“Robert Cucuzza flexed [his] highly imaginative choreographic wit and elicited doses of playful irreverance from spare compositions.
