To Fall in Love

    I love this play, heartbreaking but mostly a story about love, genuine, honest love. And love that needed some healing. This is perhaps my favorite piece I've read on NPX to date.

    To fall in love with Jennifer Lane's work, read this. It's a brutal, funny, heartbreaking, and thrilling play. Two meaty, complex roles for actors to dig into.

    Vibrant, quirky, heartbreakingly vulnerable, and deliciously honest, TO FALL IN LOVE WITH ANYONE DO THIS is an intimate examination of love, loss, and acceptance. Jennifer Lane walks a very thin line eloquently, balancing her characters’ needs, wants, secrets, and admissions with perfect poise. A delightful read and I’m dying to see this staged! #PlaywrightPlug
