Turner Street’s bold paintings are the hottest thing to hit the SoHo art scene – they’ve even captured the attention of the elusive Johanna. But when his one-eyed, pill-popping, younger brother Palmer appears, Turner must face the disturbing truth of his success, the dark family secrets shut behind doors, and risk losing everything.

    Seinuk knows her mythology, and drawing upon not just Genesis but also Greek and Norse mythology. Her allusions to and repetitions of mythological violence elevates Eyes Shut. Door Open. above the popular plot formula of dark domestic secrets revealed at a family reunion.

    I reviewed the 2015 production by Wax Wings Productions for The Arts Fuse. The full review can be read here:

    In this updated Cain and Abel story, Cassie tempts us with characters who possess competing motivations and secrets that live just below the surface. Cassie leads us in and out of the past with a haunting lyricism that ignites our interest in following these troubled brothers on their tragic journey.

    Cassie's writing is fresh, witty, and compelling. She is an energetic, disciplined, and supportive collaborative artist and playwright.
