    "If there was a good option, we wouldn't be doing this." I love this play and how darkly playful it is. I laughed at times I felt that I shouldn't and then it suddenly struck me how close we are to this being our constant reality. A truly wonderful new play that needs to get produced ASAP.

    "It's kinda like Christmas."
    "This is nothing like Christmas."
    Terrifying and so smart and SO SO important.
    Bublitz's voice is irresistible and funny and that makes all of this worse, because like WOW is this ever good and scary, because it's not only possible, it's HAPPENING, has happened, will happen, should not be happening in our world today.
    And Bublitz makes those points. So well. And delights us the entire time she's bringing the truth to light.
    This is really marvelous.
    One of the best offerings on NPX.
    This should be performed across the country.
    And will be.
    I hope.
