The Skin Game by John Galsworthy (1867 - 1933) .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-skin-game-by-john-galsworthy/
A small play in three acts.A kind of comic tragedy. The plot tells the story of the interaction between two very different families in rural England just after the end of the First World War. Squire Hillcrist lives in the manor house where his family has lived for generations. He has a daughter, Jill, who is in her late teens and a wife Amy, as well as servants and retainers. He is “old money”, although his finances are at a bit of low ebb. The other family is the “nouveau riche” Hornblowers, headed by the single-minded and rich industrialist Hornblower who throws old retainers the Jackmans out of their home (much to the Squire’s disgust), and who plans to surround the Hillcrist’s rural estate with factories (Summary by catrose (and wikipedia))
  1. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

Let me start be apologizing about my last post. That play has been removed due to copyright reason.
This is a cool play that I have found, though. It's a bit bigger than the other, but I think I can handle it. It has 17 characters

AMY .....................His Wife
JILL ....................His Daughter
DAWKER ..................His Agent
HORNBLOWER ..............A Man Newly-Rich
CHARLES .................His Elder Son
CHLOE ...................Wife to Charles
ROLF ....................His Younger Son
FELLOWS .................Hillcrist's Butler
ANNA ....................Chloe's Maid
THE JACKMANS ............Man and Wife
AN AUCTIONEER
A SOLICITOR
TWO STRANGERS
And a narrator

Oh, yes! Sign me up, too! I am not familiar with work, so whichever is still available and you think would work, sign me up! :D

Hey Caprisha, would you be Chloe? She's ummm fun?! (you should read the Wikipedia article before deciding) and Chuck, do you want to be Charles (her husband)? With you two, the last scene is going to be brilliant! :)

Well, I suppose it was only a matter of time before I played a character named Charles. Also find it funny that Caprisha and I are still playing a married couple! What are the odds? :lol: So, yeah, sounds like fun.

Hi
You need to have a look at other drama threads I think , unless you are planning to double up characters - I'm not a drama person but they seem to have a section for each character and sections for the acts- but you better check
And are you planning to do all the editing - and if so - have you done any ? - it is labour-intensive :D.
Am I missing something or isn't there any PLing bit in the first post ?

Have we been married before? How could I have been so careless! :D

Oh my...Sorry, I can't count! :oops: and I'm planning to try doing all the editing (I've watched Phil's videos on basic editing and we're taught how to edit radio adverts in school, working to a script. :) If I get stuck on editing (and hopefully I won't! :) ) I'll advertise editor wanted on the Listeners and Editors Wanted forum. :D Oh and I must not have copied the template right...PL added (point 5)
