    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.

    Just WOW! Paige, how did you cram so much agony and hope into 10 minutes? A simply beautiful play, that would bring down the house in any 10-minute play festival! When I was asked to direct this show I jumped with joy because I loved it so much. She has found beauty in the pain, and has invited us into an unimaginable world, lets us stay awhile, and reminds us of our own humanity. A wonderful piece!
