- Lou Baron:20 May. 2021“ I was lucky enough to watch a reading of Rye Bread this Spring, and it was absolutely delightful! The characters are colorfully drawn and unique, worming their way into my hearts immediately (which especially impressive considering one of them is a real tennis player with anger management issues!). As a young Jewish woman, I felt Rye's reflections on her relationship to Judaism to be fresh and very real. Hilarious and emotional, definitely give this play a read! ”
- Shaun Leisher:15 Jun. 2020“ This play tells such a specific story but Lang still is able to make it so relatable. Also, I love how Lang allows the queer couple in the play to just be and not have their queerness be something to overcome. Liked spending time with these marvelously flawed characters. ”
- Rachael Powles:16 May. 2020“ Lang curates intensely realistic situations in her writing. Amid her poignant observations and metaphors, she does not lose the beauty of everyday language, from debates over who gets the extra tomatoes from the salad, to who’s responsible for getting rid of the rats in the office to the decadence of pre-dinner ice cream. Rye Bread reminds you that real life is just as complex as the fantastical, a stark reminder in these uncertain times. (read my full review on buzzsawmag.org on May 20th!) ”
