The Secret of Jarlsberg in Florida
Eric Coley in the Panhandle Community theatre production directed by M.F. Loveless, in Pace, FL 2017.

In the play, Reynold, frustrated by his situation and trying to prove something to his girlfriend, attempts to make the world's most perfect fondue... without counting the cost.
It's a funny comedy, but at the performances I've seen the audience always goes "Awwww..." at the end. Heartwarming is the word, I guess.
