Plays written by Cassandra J. Hume
The A-is-for-Abortion Play premiered at the New York International Fringe Festival on August 14, 2013.
Forty-years after the landmark Roe vs. Wade decision, ABORTION is still a dirty word. Inspired by more than 15 true stories, this volatile political issue has a personal voice and a sick sense of humor. 5 women, 15 characters, one dirty little secret. You know a woman who has had one—she just hasn’t told you yet.
The 7 Sins of a Body Hating Food Lover premiered at Manhattan Theater Source in June 2008.
In this biting body satire of a culture of perfectionism that says a flawless body leads to a perfect life, five women enter ‘Camp Ana’ and find out what how far they’ll go to be flawless.
Can the promise of love take away those hunger pains? Is perfection as easy as denial? When god, sex, and your mother’s voicehave blurred into what you eat, do you change your diet or your lifestyle?
IBID was developed for the Generations Theater Project, premiering at GTP Fall series in November 2010, then receiving a full-length staged reading in June 2011 in NYC.
IBID is a drama about finding the mysteries of a family history--the stories either long forgotten or never heard at all: the love stories, war stories, losses and triumphs. When the first-person sources are slipping away.... what will it take not to forget a legacy?
