SEARSPORT — Cold Comfort Theater brings an intimate reading, To Fall in Love, during the week of Valentine's Day. All are welcome to hear this new story by written by Jennifer Lane and directed by Maggie Goscinski.
Scientists claim that there are 36 questions you can ask to fall in love with anyone, coupled with four minutes of uninterrupted eye contact, according to the Library, in a news release. But can this exercise save a marriage, splintered by a horrible accident?
To Fall in Love tours Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 6:30 p.m., at the Liberty Library; Wednesday, Feb. 12, at 6 p.m., at the Carver Memorial Library, in Searsport; and Thursday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m., at the Searsmont Town Library.
“A wonderfully simple play that deals with the complexities relationships face during times of grief,” said Alex Burkart, in the release. “The playwright does an excellent job asking questions in a natural way that encourages the audience to guage their own feelings on particular ‘what ifs.’”
