To Fall in Love

    There are very few plays that make me tear up, and this one did. Not just once, but several times! I remember when the 36 Questions came out, and I thought someone should write a play using these, but this goes beyond what I imagined for it. Such a brilliant play. Goes deeper than I expected. May it live a long well produced and published life!

    A wonderfully simple play that deals with the complexities relationships face during times of grief. The playwright does an excellent job asking questions in a natural way that encourages the audience to gage their own feelings on particular "what ifs."

    A lovely tour de force for two actors. The characters are authentic and engrossing from start to finish. The technical demands are simple, so the audience is able to focus on the words, the characters, and the emotions.
