Mother of Smoke (2017)

"...notable monologue is by Cassandra (Stephanie Shum) and is, fittingly, about the frustration of attempting to use Facebook to change the world....Shum is very funny and frantic as Varya, and is as adept at physical work..." - Around the Town Chicago

"Stephanie Shum’s Cassandra rages at Becky in a cathartic monologue...Shum, Kelsey Shipley and Alex Rodriguez provide lightness and grounding at the same time, pulling us from a laugh right into the darkness at hand." - Newcity Stage
