By Laura Annawyn Shamas.
Cast: 7m., 7w. (Roles are doubled. Cast may be larger.) The exciting premise of this play is explored with haunting poignancy through the eyes of Cassandra Shakespeare, the brilliant sister William Shakespeare might have had. In this moving, bittersweet play, literary figures of the past come to life, and the artistic struggle of a young Renaissance girl becomes startlingly immediate. Although Cassie speaks from the 16th-century, she speaks for the creative struggle and hopes of women today. Three simple int. sets. One ext. set.
