While some of the works are poignant, others are humorous. ''The closing play is called A Bag of Ice and it's about this loudmouth, redheaded woman. All she wants to do is buy a frigging bag of ice and she can't find any. She manages to find one, but she’s having to fight people for it.'' Weems says Dovalina was able to depict humorous situations, without resorting to punch lines. ''We're not making fun of anyone's tragedy. This woman thinks it's tragic that she can't find a bag of ice, but Fernando was really sensitive to those issues.'' Eye of the Storm is presented in repertory with A Common Martyr.
