(What is Flux Sunday?)

Our third Flux Sunday at the wonderful Loisaida Center kicked off with Isaiah filming a read-through of the first FluxForward pages submitted to us thus far, from Adam Szymkowicz’s gender-bending Robin Hood play (yup, just as much fun as you might imagine). We also marked the happy return of Marielle and Nandita from far-away places, and we welcomed first-timer Monet Hurst-Mendoza, who brought a gorgeous new play into the mix. From cross-dressing archers to angel kisses, from bondage Barbies to the human genome to Airbnb hi-jinks…this was another Flux Sunday.

Playwrights: Marielle Duke (The World to Come), Monet Hurst-Mendoza (Scratch),  Adam Szymkowicz (Robin Hood), Roland Tec (Plan B), Jason Tseng (AirBnB)

Directors: August Schulenburg, Christine Zagrobelny

Actors: Nandita Shenoy, Jeanette Bonner, Jennifer Kipley, Ken Glickfeld, Isaiah Tanenbaum, Dara O’Brien, Stephanie Willing, Matthew Trumbull, Sarah Amandes and Chester Poon.

Highlights included:

  • Matthew Trumbull and Jennifer Kipley’s lovely and sad duet of near-connection in Marielle’s (The World to Come).
  • Jason Tseng shadow boxing in Monet’s Scratch…’nuff said.
  • Jeanette Boner tearing it up as a fawning Francine meeting a legend in Roland’s Plan B.
  • Isaiah’s sweetly amused and probably-a-little-too-open-for-his-own-good Airbnb host in Jason’s Airbnb.

If you were there, what arrows hit your target?

And more fun photos from Isaiah…
