MacGregor's Hard Ice Cream and Gas (print) by Daniel Macdonald

The MacGregor family patriarch has passed away, but the ground in their desolate prairie town is frozen solid, making it impossible to bury him. In a sudden desperate attempt to make things right, son Jack hijacks the body—coffin and all—up to his attic bedroom and holds his dead father hostage, keeping him cool with containers of their unique homemade ice cream.

MacGregor's Hard Ice Cream and Gas (print)

Jack's mother, Marlene, has taken to pacing in circles in the basement, while his older brother is obsessed with fixing a sign for gas that they never sell. Into all of this walks Missy—gone for sixteen years, and ten-and-a-half months pregnant. In this gothic prairie tale of love, loss, and redemption, playwright Daniel Macdonald weaves together a hilarious and touching work that blends the absurd with the all-too-real, darkness with blinding light, and bitter cold with the warmth of forgiveness.
