    Caught this tonight at the Utah New Works Theatre Project. Good, good stuff. Superb characterization.

    “Everyone wants a community garden, but no one wants to build it.” - in this crystalline moment, Bublitz reveals her uncanny knack for developing balanced, believable characters through rhythmically charged pacing and aching reveals. Her plays are prismatic, allowing us to see many personalities and perspectives, while moving forward in understanding a little more about ourselves and human nature. There’s an imagistic, almost cinematic quality to this piece, that says so much about where we’ve been and where we’re going.

    Bublitz has a way of tackling difficult topics and problematic people in a charismatic way. We know what's really being said, and most of us even know how Rose feels, but the way the moment is captured makes it feels like we are present enough to experience the discomfort of it all first hand. I feel like I'm in an art gallery staring at a delightful painting but discovering all of the clues that the artist left signaling that these aren't just friends in a garden. Much more indeed!
