    I know O'Grady writes with insight and empathy — And this one shows her humorous chops, too! Hilarious! I'd love to see the character FRIDGE onstage. So many possibilities for staging, with dialogue that just sparkles. Someone should produce a whole evening of plays about major appliances ASAP!

    I absolutely love this play. It's smart, funny, and witty. The Fridge as a character is absolutely adorable and it makes me want to hug my own appliance. I would love to see this staged. It's one of those plays you didn't know needed to exist until it plopped in your lap and then you feel like, oh, of course. Another fantastic play from a tremendously versatile playwright. I'm such a huge O'Grady fan!

    A very cute and heartwarming metaphor for parenting indeed. It gave me some laughs and I left it with a smile on my face.

    This is whimsical and insightful! I loved the humor. Strong characters, including the fridge! I also especially appreciate that the characters can be cast to be any age, gender or race/ethnicity. So helpful to people who have specific actor pools to work with, AND good for high school theater groups.

    O'Grady surprised me with this play.
    Not because she doesn't deliver the same reflective, heartwarming, heartwrenching turn of excellence I've come to expect. She does, and in spades.
    Not because it isn't also hilarious and a marvelously unique concept. It is, and, again, marvelously so.
    And not because she didn't make me think about life from the perspective of an everyday object that I hadn't really thought about before. (I particularly recommend her CAGE and CIRCUMNAVIGATION.) She does, although she arguably goes an additional step here.
    I just didn't expect to have my heart moved by a refrigerator today.
