The Kassandriad by N. R. Ivan, Knox alum and incredible playwright, was produced in both Winter 2023 as a part of New Plays Workshop and later as a full production Fall 2023 in Studio Theatre. Both were directed by Kamana'okekai Lattig. Much of the original NPW cast returned to the show in Studio.

Famously, sold out Studio on closing night. Many people will say they loved the show and it made them cry, but didn't really understand what happened. Dare I say, that's art, man.

The play follows Kassandra, of Greek myth, bouncing through time as she would have experienced her life as a fortune teller cursed by Apollo to know the future, but never be believed. It... might be on YouTube (AS LEGALLY UPLOADED BY THE PLAYWRIGHT DON'T WORRY) if you want to find it.
