"Ms. Soland has developed several plays...all interesting, all clever, all unique. She is gorgeously talented." - Charles Nelson Reilly

"Soland's work is so audience friendly...she has an uncanny ear for dialogue." - Los Angeles Times

"If you are looking at this book as a possible source of performance material, you are in for some work. Lisa Soland doesn't cut any slack to the actors and directors. Her work is demanding. Be prepared to sweat, curse and spend many frustrated nights staying awake, searching for that extra level you just know she's put there. Yes, hard work. But it's the kind of hard work that leads to the intense joy of success. With subjects as diverse as answering the question 'What is the purpose of Art?' or finding the common ground between a couple separated by a huge personal loss, Lisa manages to find a simple and easy way to make those topics, and the characters involved, accessible to the audience. Yet her simplest works have more layers and meanings than the vast majority of complicated works being shown in major houses. I wholeheartedly recommend this book and these plays. Read on and enjoy." - Steven L. Sears (writer/producer)

Come to the Garden was first presented at the Annual Summer Shorts Festival, Bryant Lake Bowl, Theatre Limina, in Minneapolis, MN, in 2006.
The play was also part of The Limbo Plays Project with The Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute at Cleveland State University, January 30, 2008.
