    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."

    A really great funny play. I love how the fridge serves as all sorts of different metaphors and at the heart of this play is a story about appreciating what you have in life. Well-written with great dialogue. This is the kind of play that stays with you!
