    JENNIFER O’GRADY writes a most heartwarming ten-minute play. There is so much to love about this piece. The dialogue is witty. The ‘call-out’ on repairmen is hilarious. The ‘bond’ between a woman and her fridge is thought provoking. The ending is downright wonderful. “Fridge” will delight any audience, any time!

    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."

    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!

    This play made me think about my relationships to people. This play when made me think about my relationships to material things. This play made me think about hard conversations I need to have with me about myself. It's a multi-purpose piece that helps you with whatever problem you bring to it, and I appreciate it for that.

    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!
