IN THE PRESS

Put David Mamet, Amy Tan, and Gordon Gecko in a centrifuge and you get something like Lucy Wang's hilarious and clever JUNK BONDS.

I've enjoyed reading your script [screenplay FILL OR KILL] over again, and remembering how distinctive your voice was for me, when we went through the final round of judging.  We're going to have fun diving into things with you this coming week....We chose well! 

THE VILLAGE VOICE

In sum, Lucy is a highly creative artist, whose writings challenge us to think deeply, even as we chuckle.  Trying her hand at multiple genres and structures, as well as trying daring subject matter, Lucy brings a large and innovative talent to bear on all she does.  She is always ready to try something new, even if the outcome is far from sure.  It is these qualities, along with the sheer talent and ability she demonstrates, that confirm the wisdom of my original desire to collect her papers.

When asked about Wang's style, Terrence Cranendonk, director of Cleveland Public Theatre's New Play Festival, compared her use of language to poetry, saying that it is so lucid and intelligent...
