FULL LENGTH: Let’s Fix Andy deals with male body images, friendship, and growing into being an adult. Andy’s best friends, Logan, Marcus, and George decide it’s time they step in after he’s been dumped by his long time girlfriend Megan, to snap him out of his funk. All three of them have different ideas of what Andy actually needs, and so Andy is dragged to the gym, the bar, and a cabin in the woods before things come to a head and he declares that he doesn’t need fixing. By the end of the play, with all four playing video games in Andy’s safe place, his couch, they realize that there’s no fixing anyone, and all any of us can really ask for is friendship that is focused on acceptance for who we are.

    An insightful look at male friendships and how what we need most is acceptance not alterations in the moment of struggle. Well done.

    LET'S FIX ANDY takes a look at the difficulties of navigating the emotional ties of male friendships. As Andy's brother and friends attempt to help him "become happier" through changing his behaviors and his environments, they must also look into their own ideas of masculinity and happiness.

    A charming, often hilarious, look at the sometimes deeply confusing world of male friendships. Bublitz effortlessly strikes a perfect balance of crafting a play that excels in the use of vignettes while also forming a wonderful through line that draws the reader in. The characters are deep, compelling, and familiar to anyone who has a close group of friends struggling with what adulthood really means. Quick, poignant, and as comforting as a spoonful of cookie dough.
