Lillian Ann Slugocki and Erin Cressida Wilson's The Erotica Project, to which playwright John Patrick Shanley (Four Dogs and a Bone) and theatre critic Laurie Stone have contributed a monologue apiece, concludes its Off-Off-Broadway run at HERE Aug. 29.

The Erotica Project was originally created as a monthly series of sexual, emotionally-charged monologues for Manhattan's WBAI-FM. The HERE evening collects roughly a dozen of the highly explicit pieces, the plots of which can not be easily explained on a family web site. Suffice it to say the production touches upon such things as Mary Magdalene, cross dressing, a stove, a garden hose, a New Orleans street, and a Presidential intern.

Shanley's contribution is titled "Woman with a French Accent." Stone penned the selection "Struck." The rest of the monologues were written by Slugocki and Wilson.

Wilson is the author of Cross-Dressing in the Depression, which was presented at Soho Rep. She is currently writing works for the Steppenwolf Theatre Company and Playwrights Horizons. Slugocki is writing and producing a documentary series for National Public Radio called The Archaeology of Lost Voices.

The Erotica Project, which features a cast of six women and one man, plays Friday and Saturday nights at 10:30 PM. For information, call (212) 647-0202. -- By Robert Simonson
