    This play brilliantly takes one of society's biggest double standards and turns it on its head. Super smart and hilarious, until you remember how unfunny the reality is. Incredibly relevant to today's "smash the patriarchy" cultural ethos, this play is equally important for men and women alike to see. Entertaining, fun and horrifying all at once. Highly recommend.

    The moment you dare have the inclination to think “this is outrageous, and completely implausible,” it slowly dawns that the premise Bublitz pursues in this play makes perfect sense. And, while men will surely find the circumstances unsettling, that’s precisely the point. It’s so much more than a “flip-the-script-in-power-dynamics-sketch.” Bublitz is working hard to help men understand the powerlessness women feel regarding reproductive rights. And when Laura extorts a smile from Patrick at the end, it’s a swift, hard kick to the goodies... and I’m embarrassed to say that it’s much deserved. Outstanding.

    Yes a million times!! This is a very smart take on inequality and I want to see it produced in festivals everywhere. I love that Bublitz turns the table on gender causing us to feel empathy for the guy but also a complicated sense of almost solidarity with the woman representing the patriarchy in this piece. This might be the most important 10-minute play I've read in years.
