Now, that was an easy going :9: Chitra is PL OK.

I loved the dignity of Chitra, and all the other characters were wonderful to listen to, too :)

I have messaged the reader for Harold in Food and have not heard back. We'll need to orphan this role. I will go ahead and post in the orphan thread to find a replacement.

TJ has told me through PM that she has already recorded Irene's lines and they are almost ready.

PL OK.

I didn't detect a noticable French accent (except when you gave your name), and everything is clear.

At 91.9 dB, it's right on the upper limit of acceptable volume levels. It's OK here, but in the future, you might want to try *slightly* softer.

On the whole, as excellent recording.

Hi,
if you don't mind, I could help out with the last two open stage directions at 54 and 72.
It seems I don't have any other roles in these plays.
Cheers,
Ava.

Thank you James & Sonia,
I'm looking forward to recording another part soon! And I'll make sure it's softer next time.

:help:

I'm looking at the stage directions for "A Day well Spent", and I'm confused... some of them are simple, and others say things like:

Enter CUTAWAY, C. D.

Enter BOY, L.
Exeunt, R.

Knocking at door, F.L.

Enter CUTAWAY, followed by HARRIET, L.H. 1 E.

I think C.D. could be "center door", L and R are probably "left" and "right", F.L could be "front left", but I am puzzled by L.H. 1 E. - Left H ??? first ???
Any help with this, please?
Cheers,
Ava.

I think "D" does not mean door, but "E" means "exit" or "entry" (meaning the doors). I saw a picture of the different stage places somewhere...need to check. I think CD or DSC might mean "Center Down" or "Down Stage Center". There is also CU (Center upstage, etc)

ah I found a picture: https://sites.google.com/a/hightechhigh.org/aliceson-l-dp/7th-grade/drama/stage-directions

maybe this helps

Thank you - yes, that helps, somewhat at least. I'll do my best.

Interesting that "down stage" is near the audience.
I have recently learned that a traditional Noh stage is slightly slanted, and 3 cm higher at the back than in front. Could it be that "upstage/downstage" were once that obvious?
Cheers,
Ava.

indeed ! very interesting. Yes I can see that this would result in the up and down distribution

Yes indeed, stages were slanted that way. Nowadays, we're accustomed to theatres where the house is slanted (where the audience sits) and the stage is flat. But in older times (and not just Noh performances) the audience usually was standing on a flat surface, and the stage was slanted so that you could see all the players.

They had me confused too. That's why I resisted claiming the narrator for myself.

But, now that you've got the job, that leaves just Mr. Cutaway, which I guess, I'll take.
