RE--Narrator--Efficiency

One comment....The Persons of the Play on pages xv and xvi were omitted. Other than that, the reading was very nicely done!

Many thanks,

Philip

Well, my first instinct (i.e. what I did before I stopped and thought about it) was to say two-four-one.
I don't have any insight at all, but I am wondering if the author maybe used this number specifically to make a pun on the word "two for one", meaning the scientist now found a way to provide the emperor with a double use of manpower. First the normal human soldiers, and then, when they are crippled and half-dead, they get a second life as robot-slaves in the war. "Two uses for One Person" - 2 4 1. This pun would get lost if you said "two forty-one" or "two hundred and forty-one"

But maybe I'm interpreting too much into it.... :mrgreen:

Sonia
Oooooh. That's an interesting interpretation! I hadn't thought of this at all.
Well, regardless of whether it's true or not, I now definitely need to stick with two-four-one! :D
Kitty:

I think your interpretation is right on target. Although I would point out that in the colloquy between the "mad" scientist and the Emperor, the scientist calls him two-forty-one--might be subliminal--but your interpretation is more likely. Bravo :clap: :clap: :clap:

Many thanks,

Philip

:( oh he did ? Well then I think the author did not think of my interpretation. Never mind.

In any case, I checked your 241 and it's PL ok and the voice effect is great. :thumbs:

I will update the MW with everything new

Foon:

Your corrections to the narrator were perfect! The narrator for Efficiency is PL-OK!
Thanks also for your comments about Brainard.

Kitty--thank you for your PL of 241. (Maybe the coincidence was unintentional--or even subliminal...but it still works!)

Can I take the Waiter and the Emperor?

One more thing -- I'm not sure if the Hall Boy has any lines. I looked through the text, thinking I might take that one too, but couldn't find any dialogue. Am I missing anything?
Current Projects:
SOLO: The Intermediate Sex (Edward Carpenter)
GROUP: Prison Memoirs of an Anarchist (Alexander Berkman)

Well. I was so convinced he had a few "yes sir" lines. But no, I can't find any either.. :oops:

Reminds me of a play I saw once, set in the distant future, called "T 4 2". Took me a while to realize it was a pun on "Tea for two".
