to fall in love
by jennifer lane
a midwest premiere

directed by jaimelyn gray

Featuring Madeline Wakley and Matthew Scales

More than 20 years ago, the psychologist Arthur Aron watched as two strangers, sitting directly across from each other, fell in love in his laboratory as they asked each other a series of 36 questions he had prepared. Six months later, the two participants were married and invited the entire lab to the ceremony. In "To Fall in Love" a couple, Merryn and Wyatt, on the verge of ending their marriage, meet in Wyatt's apartment and use the questions in hopes of reconnecting and a starting a new phase of their relationship.
