    A well crafted, beautiful piece about a couple struggling to connect in the midst of their unique experiences of grief. What begins as a discussion about flowers quickly unfolds into something far deeper. I would love to see this staged.

    Beautifully crafted, heart breaking play. “In Full Bloom” demonstrates Paige Zubel’s brilliance for creating simple, authentic stories from the heart. I cried. Brava, Paige Zubel.

    The simplicity and clarity of the exchanges between Roger and Beth makes their loss all the more shattering. This play gets at the truth of how people endure the unendurable and how sometimes they just don't for a time. Zubel offers an extraordinarily humane portrait of life the midst of harrowing grief.
