    I know O'Grady writes with insight and empathy — And this one shows her humorous chops, too! Hilarious! I'd love to see the character FRIDGE onstage. So many possibilities for staging, with dialogue that just sparkles. Someone should produce a whole evening of plays about major appliances ASAP!

    I absolutely love this play. It's smart, funny, and witty. The Fridge as a character is absolutely adorable and it makes me want to hug my own appliance. I would love to see this staged. It's one of those plays you didn't know needed to exist until it plopped in your lap and then you feel like, oh, of course. Another fantastic play from a tremendously versatile playwright. I'm such a huge O'Grady fan!

    A very cute and heartwarming metaphor for parenting indeed. It gave me some laughs and I left it with a smile on my face.
