One of three plays for Twelfth Grade, Cassandra recapitulates the classical Greek tale of a young woman cursed to see the future and never to be believed in what she sees. This reflects the experience of many a high school teenager today. The dramatic playing out of this phenomenon is a helpful tool for maturing individuals, getting ready to meet the world as adults. The sensitivity with which this play was written is clear, and the glory of the tragedy of such a destiny is represented artistically and in depth.
