Cassandra is tickled pink to be working with Writopia Lab in LA after starting at the Chicago region! While in Chicago, Cassandra worked as a professional playwright for over a decade. From 2013 to 2017 she wrote 300 micro-plays for The Dictionary Project, a challenge she created for herself to write short plays for all her friends based on their dramatic suggestions and random words she found in the dictionary. Her longer plays include The Amen Trilogy, The Battle of Charlottesville, Billy to his Friends, and The Volunteer. Her work has been developed and produced by Broken Nose Theatre, Chicago Dramatists, Jackalope Theatre Company, The New Colony, and Stage Left Theatre. She earned her BA in playwriting from Columbia College Chicago, and she was a Tutterow Fellow at Chicago Dramatists (an MFA alternative program). Now that she's in LA, she's transitioning into TV Writing with help from UCLA's Professional Program in Writing for Television and Upright Citizen Brigade's sketch writing program. She's looking forward to working with LA's young writers!
