“‘Best Bet’. In Mike Poblete’s intriguing new play, Surfacing, the four-person cast is strong. Surfacing is a play that succeeds on all levels. It’s comic, punchy, uncensored dialog is enough to make anyone relax. The language is definitely for adults, yet leaves space for one’s inner child…Seeing a bunch of talented, sensitive characters who all have social anxiety and deep-seated feelings of inadequacy is a helpful reminder that, yes, probably some part of us is achieving things in spite of ourselves. And Poblete’s remarkable writing comes vividly to life…”

“Surfacing was hands down brilliant. Poblete holds a deep tome peppered with great wit. He understands of concept of dark comedy.”
