Giantess

Written and performed by Cassie Workman

Presented by Freshwater Entertainment Management in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

A happy six-year-old girl who loves giants and her chain-smoking single Dad is on a routine outing for school supplies and is kidnapped whilst her Dad’s back is turned. Taken to a strange house, Sam’s captor tells her she is sick and can never ever leave. Now only the power of a giant can save her.

Created by the multi-award-winning comedian Cassie Workman, Giantess is a story of self acceptance. Interweaving music, comedy, storytelling and illustration, Cassie’s one-person-show explores the anguish of coming to terms with a gender identity that doesn’t match your body.

Reviews

Giantess is a colossal achievement. ★★★★★

Herald Sun

Cassie Workman’s new one-woman show is remarkably and charmingly… deeply-felt comedy… dotted with tiny jewels of jokes… but in concept much bigger – and better – than the sum of its jokes.
