NFA Playshop performs a virtual 'Monologue Show'
Norwich Free Academy students who are part of NFA Playshop have filmed "The Monologue Show," and the result will be available Nov. 20-22.
In a comic tale of art imitating life, "The Monologue Show" involves a theater class preparing to perform a series of true-life monologues, only to scramble and improvise when things don't go as planned.
Twenty-nine NFA students are taking part in the production, portraying roles as varied as a teen couple in the midst of an on-air breakup, a human cannonball, a Star Wars fan fiction writer, an intense spelling bee champion and a boy obsessed with cats. This show takes place over a Google Meet-type call. Students were separately filmed in NFA's own television studio, overcoming the limitations of this socially distanced year.
"The Monologue Show" is now available for pre-order at http://nfafoundation.org/supportplayshop. A minimum donation of $10 gives a household full-day access to watch as many times as they want.
