    Dental floss! Beans! Chinese take-out! All these items make one heck of a Christmas story. At its heart, a heartwarming story about the families we choose, and the friendships we nurture. A beautiful play for the holiday season or anytime. Read it, produce it!

    O'Grady neatly captures the struggle of creating your own independence but still figuring out what traditions are important to you as a person. Perfect for anyone with a found family and a touch of cynicism who just can't shake the Christmas cheer.

    Be grateful for the moment, appreciate the beautiful moments and each other because that's what matters in the end. Perfect for holiday fests.

    Awwww, sweetness! A perfect holiday read, with warmth and humorous banter aplenty! O'Grady has such a knack for making characters we care about, right from the get-go, and who hasn't had a holiday where you're making due with what's available? This one's a gem, and would be super-fun to see onstage.

    A dismal, otherwise ordinary day turns out wonderfully. This was a fun piece.

    Such a wonderful play. There is so much warmth and history between two extremely funny characters. I just adore the way that O'Grady writes--there is so much tenderness, humor, and truth in this play. Her characters and plays never cease to make me feel comforted and safe--and this play is sure to warm anyone's heart on a cold wintery evening. The play ends with everyone knowing these two people intimately--and they are all the better for it. Merry Christmas indeed.

    A sweet ten-minute Christmas play highlighting friendship and how the holiday season isn’t the best time of year for everyone. I enjoyed the give and take and negotiations over food and how well developed the friendship is within the few pages of the play. Would be a great addition to any holiday night of shorts, especially one looking for something not too sentimental, but that still has a ton of heart.

    Jennifer O'Grady has crafted a nice portrait of friendship that remains strong even during rough times: no plans for Christmas, not much food in the cupboard, no job prospects and even questioning why friends are friends to begin with. Most Wonderful would be a terrific addition to holiday- and Christmas-themed festivals and productions.

    Off-beat twist on the old tradition of stringing popcorn on the Christmas tree. A very gentle and humorous play from O'Grady. Definitely better than most plays about actors/acting/theatre - heartfelt and a tad sentimental - in a good way. Nice dialogue, too. One of my favorites: "Oh, look: Keira Knightley is taking more of our jobs away."
