Jane the Plain | Flux ForePlay: Extra Credit / by Shaun Fauntleroy


What is Flux ForePlay: Extra Credit, you ask? 

From Flux: 

Welcome to Extra Credit, the next installment of  ForePlay, Flux’s series of short plays inspired by the themes of a full production. This ForePlay riffs on the themes of our upcoming production of Jane the Plain, playing at the 4th Street Theatre from May 9th-24th.

...we’re embedding this ForePlay into the run of Jane the Plain itself. This means that you’ll want to show up early for the performances, because you might just catch a little “extra credit”: a special monologue performed that night only!


I had the great pleasure of not only writing a monologue for this, which was my Flux debut as a playwright, but also of performing a monologue written by the one and only Mac Rogers! The monologue was titled Girl Gone Gorgon and was directed by the lovely Emily Hartford.  Aside from how wonderful the monologue was (a young woman's tortured relationship with Medusa), I really missed speaking Mac's words so this was a serious treat!
