The "Mind The Paint" Girl by Arthur Wing Pinero (1855 - 1934).

Another Pinero play from the early 1900s. With a social message about the effects of stardom on the star as well as those that love them. "I’m afraid there’s one thing finer than winning the woman you love and, when you’ve won her, being prepared to go through fire and water for her." "What’s that?" "Having the courage to give her up"
( ToddHW)

    Another Pinero! Gender neutral casting, with Kitty as our role model at the Pandora Theater (as in be careful what you ask for!)

    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.
    2. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
      To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/21849
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

      If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.



      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Kitty as our role model at the Pandora Theater (as in be careful what you ask for!)
I am always amused by the epithets you come up for in each play. 8-)

Getting this on my DPL list (yet again....) and claiming the lovely but depressed Gabrielle (just waiting for Chris to make a Xena joke now...)

I claim Lily Parradell!

Edit: oop, I guess Foon got to it before me! In that case I'll take Enid.

Edit 2: gosh there are a LOT of female parts! If double claims are possible I can also take Maud as she's in different acts.

Colonel Stidulph, if you please.

Here's the original poster for the silent movie that was made from this play:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0010464/mediaviewer/rm2952277504

Have at close look at the tag-line under Arthur Wing Pinero's name. :lol:

Nice painting here too: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Billie-Burke-Mind-the-Paint-Girl.jpg

"(just waiting for Chris to make a Xena joke now...)"
I'd better not. I hear that Xena makes frequent donations to the Red Cross Blood Bank ... just not her own. :shock:


Cheers,
Chris
