Wow, I love this play. My heart needed this play. It's a beautiful, delicate, powerful piece about love, this is such a special piece. ”

Audrey Lang has written a beautiful play. Besides the solid scene work, there are these snowy/dreamy sequences of high school characters projecting for themselves a future that we all want them to have. Of course we know that life doesn't happen that way, so it's heart-breaking. But the life that fills all aspects of this play is enormously appealing! ”

Lets start with the title. So many plays have sucky titles. but don't you just love this one... "You Have to Promise"?
I download the script and immediately love the way the words look on the page.
Ms. Lang writes the way actors think. I started to read it out loud.
And the emotion just leaps off the page.
Right away I knew that Ms. Lang is a playwright to watch.
That was my first thought. And my second was...someone needs to do this play.
Can't wait to dive into the rest of Ms. Lang's work! ”
