I was able to see a reading of this play a few years ago as part of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, and to this day it remains one of my favorite ten-minute plays. An introspective piece about weeding out one's own desires vs. societal pressures as an adult. I know I'm not the only one who has had a conversation in the mirror with the little girl she once was, and Bublitz reassures us all that defiance takes on many forms. ”

A challenging and self-reflective look at feminism, sacrifice, and what it means to grow up. Rachel Bublitz writes a profound dialogue about the dichotomy of dreams, practicality, and where they strain to meet. Though humorous in nature, there is something very emotional about the prospect of a child evaluating themselves in their adulthood. Another thought provoking aspect is the challenge of the heroic aunt, who appears not to give an answer, but present the challenging question of what do you do when ideals become strained past their breaking point? Funny and touching, new parents can definitely relate to this one. ”
