    Builds from a gripping first image toward a memorable and terrifying end. SWALLOWED is an opportunity: a quick, intense play with a necessary call-to-action that gives a director and three actors the chance to shine.

    So this is an INTENSE ten minutes. Bublitz throws us into the action and immediately makes us spectators to something that is noble but terrifying. Swallowed is definitely a script that will stay with me for a LONG time. This would be an amazing entry for a night of short plays and/or an anthology. I would love to see it staged and would love to see actors get their hands on this one.

    Wow. Definitely one of my favorite climate control plays. This is the kind of play that can inspire playwrights to write their own climate control plays or be used by theatres and non-profits around the globe. The dramatic situation intensified by crashing waves and thunder creates a spectacle I've never seen on the page and stage. An amazing challenge for designers. In the future we will be inspired by our climate control martyrs. Produce this now, share it, tweet it, this is theatre that is necessary!
