To Fall in Love

    Grief and love go hand-in-hand in this poignant play. It encompasses so many things: moving on while staying put, loss, falling in love again, and how to reconnect when old connections have crumbled. The end takes your breath away. Sparkling dialogue, and characters that you want to hold make this an accessible piece for all audiences.

    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."
