    I think it's amazing how much this play foreshadows the future and how people think today. From the mom's perspective, it captures how much she anticipates that life can't stop regardless of what is happening in the world. That mindset truly affects her daughter and everyone else around her. Something that is 100% relatable today.

    I highly recommend Red Days, because right from the beginning it had my attention. When I read this I couldn't put it down. This play emphasizes the importance it is to take care of the world around you. I also enjoyed being able to see something new but have it feel so relatable. The dialogue between all the characters actually feels like what you would hear in every day conversations. This is a MUST READ!

    Red Days takes a very real issue and puts it into perspective if something is not done. Bublitz makes you hate, love, care for and worry about the characters that have been created within this story. This is a must read for anyone that truly cares about the environment and our planet.
