    Another lovely play from Jennifer O'Grady that cuts right to the heart of a situation we can all recognize: hanging on to something for some reason - stubbornness, fear, habit - but not really being able to articulate why you can't quite do it. It's enough to make you scream. Scream. The fridge is such a lovely character, so sweet and eager to please, but completely baffled as to why it never quite works right. In the end, this speaks to anyone who's ever cared for someone despite (or because of?) their flaws. Great stuff.

    A sweet metaphor about being in and staying in a relationship where someone considers themselves broken. Oddly touching, for a piece about a woman and her broken refrigerator.

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