FRAN is either male or female. FRAN is a left-wing intellectual, burnt out.

Choose the time and FRAN's age. When was FRAN born? When was FRAN's failed personal/political revolution?


2. FRAN: You see the real mistake, the real mistake, was thinking, us thinking, that the need to change the world, everything, was a rational decision.

You convinced yourself that you could wake up one glorious morning, and glance in the mirror, and realise that the revolution had come and changed everything.

That the struggles of the classes had overthrown capitalism. Fancy that.
The proletariat had marched over the bones of the bosses.

Well, glory be, that the revolution would give you the rational cosmetics to smear over your face for the world, pasted over that desperate little face you looked at yesterday in the mirror.
Recipe: change the world.

I've been on the run all these years, waiting for the final make-over.
Now at last, I'm going to turn me in.
