    I selected this play to be produced as part of our college's Spring 2021 Online Play Festival. A conflict over a malfunctioning refrigerator serves as a larger metaphor for the intricacies of human relationships complete with expectations not being met, fidelity concerns, assessing how much is too much before you cut a tie, as well as the possibility for forgiveness and reconciliation.

    A quirky, funny, fast-paced play that keeps us laughing, but still delivers the subliminal message that we should appreciate what we have and find room for acceptance. Well done!

    Adorable. Think about all your relationships to people and possessions you're used to, and how you would never sacrifice or replace them however unreliable and difficult and just worn-out they sometimes seem. And then think how different, and less subtly effective, this charming play would be if Fridge were actually a person and not just - a "fridge."
