    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.

    I love that we get three very different views on feminism from three very different feministsin a smart and fun manner. I also love that it reminds people that a good part of feminism is the freedom of choice and being supported as you make the best choices for you.

    As Elizabeth reconsiders what her future holds, she is confronted -- literally -- by her personal history and women's history in this funny, fierce 10-minute play. When we try to live in the present, how much of our past do we discard? Bravo to Rachel Bublitz for ratcheting up the tension and theatricality in an unexpected manner. Three wonderful roles for three generations of women actors.

    SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE FOLKS IN THE BACK! Bublitz has shed light and brought laughter to feminism and what it ISN'T. A very relevant play that I would love to be in, see, or quote from while rocking a baby and a pussy hat. /// "Feminism is not here to dictate to you. It's not prescriptive, it's not dogmatic. All we are here to do is give you a choice..." (Emma Watson)

    Good piece on the aspirations of women and how the past is indeed another country.
