    Oh my word, this is stunning! The image of Grandpa, so in tune and in love with the glaciar that he melts with it, even with his granddaughter looking on, is incredible.
    With global warming a massive and alarming issue to the earth, this is a play which should be performed to world leaders to make them finally understand. Excellent!

    I'm quite taken with the concept of the grandfather melting along with the glacier, uniting us literally *and* metaphorically to our environment-- quite curious to see how some would envision this moment on stage. Also, though addressing such a dire reality, this short piece is not without humor and human connection.

    "How do you explain away fact? How do you explain away scientific evidence?"

    So asks a character in this short play which should be required viewing for climate-change deniers. A lovely little showdown between the voice of reason and the willfully ignorant.
