    A phenomenal interaction that gets to some much deeper waters, a fantastic metaphor that sheds a lot of light. Well done!

    Like all relationships, we all have our trying times with a partner, when it seems like things just aren't working out. And in those times, some of us turn... to the fridge. So it must be a cruel cut indeed when even the trusty icebox lets us down. In this funny and all too human play by Jennifer O'Grady, we see the breaking up, the advice from friends (or repairmen), the doubt, the acceptance and, if we're lucky, a reconciliation. All this and more awaits you with this great little play!

    What a funny play! I really enjoyed the humor, and as a metaphor for how broken we are, this play works on so many levels. The evolution of the relationship between the repairmen was also surprising and fun.
