My Body

    I had the pleasure to sit with an audience in this "flip the script" play about bodily autonomy. The play masterfully moves the audience from early laughs to nodding of heads and strong verbal affirmations of the message. A powerful and clear piece.

    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.
