    When does planned obsolescence go too far? What if her husband as an immortal goldfish! The horror. Absolutely fantastic and so funny!

    Donna gives new meaning to planned obsolescence. A wife wishes her husband, who has had 3 heart attacks, would expire. She cajoles his doctor in pulling the plug - unsuccessfully. This short play takes several fun twists and turns; plus there's a surprise ending.

    Amana has had enough of her immortal goldfish (I love this phrase) of a husband and wants to trade him in for a new model. Unfortunately for Amana, her husband’s doctor has something called ethics and keeps reviving her husband. Marital boredom and the desire for the latest new thing are explored in Ms. Hoke’s delightfully hilarious dark comedy, "This Year’s Model." Highly recommended!
