Happy for people to send me updates on parts that are claimed. Please do this via PM.

I am setting up this thread to advertise available parts in the 8 longest running plays and dramatic readings. This is to help move them along and get them completed and in the catalogue. For each project I will provide the following.

1. The parts that are available
2. Whether they are gender specific (male or female) or gender neutral (can be read by a male or a female)
3. How many chapters or acts the part appears in
4. A link to the relevant thread for that project

You will then be able to go over to the thread and sign up to a part.
The idea is that if you are looking for a part to read you can find suitable ones a little quicker

As parts are claimed then I will update the first post to reflect this.

It is not for orphaned parts as we have a different thread for that. Here is the link for orphaned parts in dramatic works

1. The Spanish Brothers by Deborah Alcock

Quote:
Juan and Carlos Menaya have longed to find their father ever since they were little. Their dream starts to get lost, though, as they grow up and go separate ways. Juan goes off to war and falls under the influence of a Huguenot prisoner while Carlos becomes a monk and begins to discover the Bible for himself. (summary may be changed before cataloging) ( Adele de Pignerolles).

2. The Betrothed

Quote:
The Betrothed was inspired by Walter Scott's Ivanhoe and was the first Italian historical novel. It deals with a variety of themes, from the cowardly, hypocritical nature of one prelate (Don Abbondio) and the heroic sainthood of other priests (Padre Cristoforo, Federico Borromeo), to the unwavering strength of love (the relationship between Renzo and Lucia, and their struggle to finally meet again and be married), and offers some keen insights into the meanderings of the human mind.

3. La Boheme

Quote:
In 1830s Paris, four struggling Bohemian artists: the poet Rudolph, the painter Marcel, the musician Schaunard, and the philosopher Colline, live poorly, but happily. On Christmas Eve, to celebrate, the four split the month's rent and decide to go out drinking in the Latin Quarter. Rudolph stays behind to finish a poem, when their frail neighbor, Mimi, knocks on the door. An equally poor seamstress, she begs him to light her candle. In an instant, his candle goes out as well, and Mimi drops her key in the dark. As they search for it, they fall in love. And thus, a tragic love begins, as tuberculosis threatens to tear Mimi away from the person and people she has come to love.
