Constance Wookey stars in “The Land of Cheesecake and Ice-Cream” as ‘Reporter’ & ‘Medic’.
“[I think this is] a unique exploration of the human condition under extreme pressure, and it offers a stark insight into the life of individuals at war. I’m playing a reporter and a medic (dual roles) working in an unnamed war-torn country in the Middle East. This is an astonishing, shocking and at times very disturbing play that I am honored to be involved with.”
