    Did not see that ending coming at all. What a wonderful surprise! This can be interpreted as literal or can be staged as a metaphor for the changes a young person experiences. Either approach will produce quite an entertaining evening of theater. Ms. Bublitz is a gifted writer of dialogue in that she captures a character's uniqueness distinctly and effortlessly--something that's not easy to do. This piece is perfect for a talented group of high school students. Highly recommended!

    I love seeing horror on stage—especially female-led horror—done right, and I SAID RUN. is exactly that. Bublitz establishes very early on that something is emphatically Not Right, and then lets the audience have terrifying fun figuring out what it is. It would also be a blast to design the makeup and costuming effects—there’s plenty of room to let a theatre’s SFX department shine. This would be an excellent piece for a Halloween showcase, a high school performance, or both.

    A wonderful little horror piece - great if you've got students into make-up FX, like I was all through High School!
