My Twisted Face (2015)
at Cincinnati Fringe Festival
Cassandra, chosen handmaiden of Apollo, was granted the gift of prophecy. Yet, when she sexually denied Apollo, in his fury, he cursed her so that no one would ever believe a word she said, despite the truths she prophesied. ‘My Twisted Face’ uses this myth and the stories of women who have been sexually assaulted/raped to explore the “rape culture” that is becoming more and more prevalent in our world.
