Hi there,

I would love to read Jerome.

Greetings from Philadelphia,

Hi Gauguin, as Chuck is probably busy correcting papers right now, I'll sign you up for the role of Jerome. I see this is your first participation in a drama project, so maybe you want a few "special guidelines" for recording.

> no need to do the LV disclaimer, the narrator will do that for each act. Just say your voice credit at the beginning of the file: "Jerome, read by Gauguin" (or whatever you want to be know as)

> please leave at least 2 seconds of silence between each of your "speeches". Even if one speech is interrupted by stage directions like "goes to the door", leave the 2 seconds as well. The reason for this is, your bits will get cut out and pasted in the correct slots in one masterfile. For the editor it's easier to cut out the sections when there is enough silence around.

> it is recommended to check out at least a bit the sentences around your own speeches, so you know what the overall mood of the other characters will be, and that makes it easier for you to react. Also if there are directions like "sobs" or "hesitantly", if you can convey that with your voice, that's a big bonus, then we can leave those stage directions out and the flow of the play will be better. :) So basically, the more you act out, the better :mrgreen:

Have fun, and if you still have any questions, don't hesitate to ask

Here comes Agnes, with surprisingly little to say.
well at least in the second act she had her moments. Everything excellently played, Agnes is someone to be relied upon. Acts 1 & 3 are already PL ok.

Small detail in Act 2:

> at 1:37: (p. 146) "And what happened then ?"- you say "and what happened to him", but since I repeat the question offended, it would be better if you really asked the same question. Agnes here is obviously eager to hear some interesting lover's story surely :mrgreen:
