    Really Adult captures both one's regret at what may have been and one's hope for what could still be. A charming, touching slice of life that leaps off the page.

    A completely spot on presentation of the modern American dream. Well done.

    Very relatable and perfectly captures everyday American Life.

    A really tight cohesive look at human relationships and the different trajectories (and speeds) in which an adult's life can unfold. Compelling, realistic characters and a relatable concept.

    This is all too real - dialogue and characters. The guy does seem "really adult" compared to this girl. She right out of her mother's house, and the guy's way beyond that. However, both have had some challenges. The old adage "There's many more fish in the sea" doesn't entirely fit here.

    This is an absolutely lovely play. Clear and compelling characters on a journey that you think you can predict, but which surprises you in the way it surprises the characters--which is exactly how their lives have surprised them as they've reached adulthood. There is a finely wrought blend of joy and heartbreak in this piece, and two characters you care about and root for romantically, and then care about even more deeply as their "targets" shift during their Target shift. Precise and heartfelt work.

    I love this play! It's filled with surprises, realistically written, and every moment seems so organic. I also love the flexibility of the ending, how it could go either way. Makes me wish I could direct it.

    Bublitz creates a fascinating short play where we think we know everything, but instead get some fun surprises. Her characters are intriguing, her situation is one we can commiserate with and the ending leaves me eager for more. Would love to see it staged!

    Bublitz has such a gift for writing young adults. She is so respectful of them, but she is so honest--capturing them in all their stuttering awkwardness and sheepish attempts at actually committing to something. "Really Adult" is a fantastic two-hander, a slice of life that is really neither funny nor dramatic. It's a bit of both. These two characters are both so determined to be something they are not and are so embarrassed by who they are. The end made me cringe. I sure hope Julie and Frank figure "adulting" out.

    I love this play and how it captures that uncertainty of being twenty-something and awkward and poor and navigating unexpected situations. Bublitz has definitely captured a moment that hits entirely too close to home. I also love the last line's double meaning because it gives my imagination a glimpse into what's going to happen for these two.
