Alum Rachel Bublitz's 'Ripped': An Unsettling Play about Sexual Consent

Thursday, June 06, 2019

SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS -- Originally from San Diego, Bublitz lived in the Bay Area for more than a decade and now lives in Salt Lake City. Ripped has its origin in a writing class that Bublitz took at San Francisco State from former Z Space resident playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb about five years ago.

“He had us writing lists about all kinds of different things, like expensive sounding words and profanity and places and themes that we were really interested in,” Bublitz recalls. “And then we started working on plays in his class, and I went to that list and especially started looking at what I wrote down for themes and topics that I was interested in.”
