    Oh Amana is so cold yet so very funny in her desperation to ditch her old model, in this case her husband! In a wasteful, throw away culture we live in now perhaps it's best to remember what is most precious to us, but apparently this is not the case for Anana! I also admired the doctors patience throughout. Very dark and funny!

    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.
