"Cassandra 2006" was written with Cherie Anderson as part of Theatre Unbound's Fifth Annual 24 Hour Play Project. The play was written in the overnight hours between 9pm and 5:30am, Friday, January 27th into the morning of Saturday, January 28th, 2006. Playwrights were teamed up by lottery, and given their cast size and make up by lottery (this assignment was to write roles for a cast of six women). Like all the other teams writing that night, we had to include the following elements: smugness (an emotion), a mask, a line of dialogue that reads "We got confirmation of punk activity," attempt at the splits (an action), and a commercial break. How those elements were to be included was up to the playwrights. The results were then assigned directors and a cast in the early morning, given 3 hours to rehearse during the day, and were then performed that evening, starting at 8pm so the whole thing - writing to performance - took place within 24 hours - Saturday, January 28, 2006. The director of "Cassandra 2006" was Carin Bratlie, and the cast was as follows:

CASSANDRA: Mikki Daniels
TIFFANY / BACKNE SPOKESMODEL: Kara Greshwalk
ANNOUNCER / HIGHER STANDARD REP: Sara Schmidt Boldon
DR. MARGY: Margot Parker
CLIENTS OF DR. MARGY (one or all of the actresses not playing Dr. Margy): Amber Bjork
