Psychologists claim answering 36 questions can make two strangers fall in love. Can those questions save a marriage splintered by tragedy? Merryn and Wyatt answer these questions in their struggle to determine whether to stay in each other's lives in the lasting wake of a horrible tragedy. Their love runs deep, but is love really enough?

A good script and a touching story, but what really makes this special are the fantastic, committed performances by the two actors. I haven't seen better naturalistic acting at the Fringe so far, it's like being the proverbial fly on a wall. Beth Gallagher & Eric Casalini are superbly believable as Merryn & Wyatt, and everyone should come see their work.

Two very skilled actors. A beautiful and evocative vignette. One of the better shows we saw this year.

To Fall in Love (****)
An estranged husband and wife set about answering a set of personal questions they found in an article to help them avoid divorce. The questions work well as a device to provide the starting points to explore their individual and shared pasts as well as the source of their current impasse. While the introduction of whiskey creates a truce of sorts, I was pleased that the play avoids taking the easy path, and continues to seek a deeper solution.

This was the 12th most enjoyable of the 58 shows I have seen so far this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website:

Potentially the best piece of naturalist theatre I think I've ever seen. Two performers offered a raw, intimate narrative about heartbreak and reconciliation in a contemplative piece going over their relationship. A few American terms were lost on me as a Brit, but it didn't spoil the incredible show that unfolded in front of my eyes. I genuinely feel so privileged to have been able to see this from the front row and would encourage anyone interested in gritty, pure, raw realism to go and see this amazing piece of live theatre from these fringe freshers.

Was a very well acted and performed piece of theatre
There were times, certainly for me, a 75 year old gent, with not brilliant hearing,when the dialogue would have been better, for me, a little louder..

I was curious to watch this as it was based on the very talked about article. It was a really beautiful piece of writing, simple and clear but full of depth, and a clever way to use the 36 questions in an unusual situation. The performers were brilliant, of a very high standard, and I felt very connected and moved the entire time. This show is a gem, unmissable! Go see it, it is special.
