Dramatic Monologue originally from 20/20 Vision
Originally performed by Nicole D'Amato

Dramatic / Female

The speaker is Cassandra from Mythology cursed by Apollo to possess foresight into events but be helpless to prevent them when no one believes her

on the coast. For when I am dragged out upon the purple cloth, Clytemnestra will take it

bed and you in return destroy my virtue with your short-sighted rage?
