I hope I got all the stage directions - some were not in brackets so I may have missed them :roll:

Thanks.
(Didn't need the "More" and "Continued" at 2:00 - I think that's just marking a page turn. Easily ignored during editing.)

Missing lines at 2:07
He rings for MARIUS.
HELENA
Then they die?
DOMIN
Yes, they get used up.
(Enter MARIUS)
Marius, bring in samples of the Manual Labor Robot.
(Exit MARIUS)
Missing line at 2:12: MARIUS exits with ROBOTS.

Missing lines at 2:14
He rings for SULLA.
HELENA
I didn't notice her.
Enter SULLA.
Missing lines at 2:16
(Feels the skin on Sulla's face)
Feel her face.
HELENA
Oh, no, no.
DOMIN
You wouldn't know that she's made of different material from
us, would you? Turn round, Sulla.
HELENA
Oh, stop, stop.
DOMIN
Talk to Miss Glory, Sulla.
SULLA
Please sit down.
(HELENA sits)
Missing line at 2:21: Enter MARIUS.

Missing line at 2:28: From the right enter MR. FABRY, DR. GALL, DR. HALLEMEIER, MR. ALQUIST.

Missing line at 2:29: BUSMAN rushes in from the right.

Missing line at 2:44: All rush out except DOMIN and HELENA.

Loud click at 2:45

Missing line at 2:59: HELENA looks at him.

At the very end you need 5-10 seconds of silence (it will depend on how long the assembled act end up being - best to put 10 seconds when you do narration). Currently there is a thump at the very end.

Fine voice!

Thanks, Todd

(By the way, you want to make corrections backwards from the end so that the timings in the PL notes don't get messed up!)

Domin and Prime recorded - need to edit.

Great story!! I am just reading a new book called "Man's Last Invention" about the rise of Artificial Intelligence and how it is going to make mankind obsolete and here is the same theme in an almost hundred year old play!

Thanks, Todd

Here are Helena and Robot Helena!

Act 1 -
https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/rur_helenaglory_01.mp3

Act 2 -
https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/rur_helenaglory_02.mp3

There's a line here that I think is mislabeled in the text. It's in Helena's line, and begins, "Domin, I tell you we are just beginning..." I checked another version of the script, and that line is supposed to be Domin's. I think it just got formatted incorrectly in the script we're using. I recorded it at the time, but it doesn't really make sense as something Helena would say :)

Act 3 -

Epilogue -

Thank you, Layne and Sarah!

Nuzzi51 also needs to record the "fourth robot" from the epilogue (forgot to mark it clearer, and ToddHW will have to record another line that was mislabeled. I will make notice of it in PL notes.

What wonderful readings! Just a few things.
Act 1
0:48 - line should be "'How do you know I wanted to say that?" - matters cuz of Domin's response
6:12 - "Kneading trough?" - trough is pronounced "troff" - matters cuz you are echoing Domin who just said it

Act 2 is PL OK. I agree with your note about the wrongly labeled line and I will record it for Domin.

Act 3 is PL OK!

Epilog is PL OK!

Thanks, Todd

I have just uploaded a new Act 2 for Domin with the line that Helena found mislabeled for me added in.
