Finalist: Playwright Foundation's Bay Area Playwrights Festival, 2018

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.

    Bublitz writes these four characters with great generosity, empathy, and humor. Her wise use of direct address provides both hilarity and poignant insight. So many narratives that comment on masculinity and male self-image focus on simply rendering men's problematic behaviors; LET'S FIX ANDY interrogates those issues further than other plays by honoring the inner lives of its male protagonists. A super speedy and funny read that I can easily stage in my mind as I read it.

    LET'S FIX ANDY is a spot-on examination of brotherhood post-college, those 30-somethings playing video-games and drinking beer that are awkwardly figuring out what it means to be a man. Why do we men try so hard to fix ourselves and other men, why do we foolishly adhere to this myth of American masculinity? How can we stop doing this? It seems like Bublitz is pointing us to a possible way out of the toxicity -- getting real, recognizing our insecurities and imperfections, focusing less on our bodies. And it may involve some mangria. Goofy. Smart. Endearing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR PRODUCTION!!!
