100% a true story. A one-woman show that chronicles the lives of two different women from the same family, two generations apart. Cassie and Helene are granddaughter and grandmother, respectively, yet barely knew each other. They were connected by DNA and by mental illness. Helene suffered from severe bi-polar disorder and depression, while Cassie suffers from Anxiety and Depression. Born in 1917, Helene never sought treatment and lived a tumultuous, sad, and troubled life. Cassie, born in 1990, sought treatment at age 20 after fighting her illness her entire life. Jumping between two time periods, Cassie chronicles how a life with mental illness can go so right, and how another can go so wrong.
