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 has such warmth for her characters, it's no wonder this play is a 2018 BAPF Finalist. Quick-witted and fast-paced, this male ensemble play is genuinely funny without losing sight of its realistic relationships and situations. I especially liked hearing the inner thoughts of the four individual characters as they each grapple with their own personal challenges. A lovely, fun play.

    What a heartfelt and hilarious examination of how men deal--or don't--with problems. The seemingly tongue-in-cheek title is both plot and statement to how men approach emotions and the big bumps in the road. It's a joy to eavesdrop, but man, if I wasn't just shouting "Just say it!" at the computer the entire time until the cathartic ending. Nice work!

    An hilarious and theatrical examination of male friendship. I would love to see a full production of this play on stage.
