    The abortion conversation flipped on its head. To many this play will seem ridiculous, dystopia, but for folks around the world this reality isn't a far cry from their own. Bublitz shows no fear in the face of a "sensitive" topic.

    Highly relevant given our current political climate! Witty, edgy, and thought provoking. I'd love to watch an audience react to this piece.

    This sharp comedy understands the matter-of-fact menace of bureaucracy. More importantly, it holds a mirror up to our nation's own descent into Theocracy, where a woman's body becomes the property of the State. This is an urgently-needed play and companies should be clamoring to produce it.
