He Said and She Said: A One-Act Play by Alice Gerstenberg (1885 – 1972) (BC for this play is benderca)
WARNING: Although the play was published in 1921, Gerstenberg died in 1972. This play is not PD for some countries. Sorry

I took out a couple of the stage directions, when voice tone made them clear and when if left in they would have interrupted the flow, but I left most in. I was considering taking out several more, but I'd like a second opinion. When PLing, please feel free to comment also on the spacing and volume. :D

Thanks,
TJ
PL OK. I think you could have taken out more of the voice tone stage directions if you wished, but I have no problem with leaving them in. It is intended to be a very awkward situation, and I can easily picture people saying nothing but speechlessly giving potent glares at each other before they do speak.

Other spacing fine and volume also fine.

Thanks, Todd

Thanks, Todd! I think I'll give it another listen, because I was leaning towards taking a few more stage directions out. But I agree with you that the pauses are sometimes effective as well. Especially the "raises her eyebrows" pauses... :D

If you do change anything, it would be best to provide timestamps of any changes so it doesn't require a full PL again.

Thanks, Todd

Wow, first, I'll say that this was one fantastic play! And everyone played their roles to perfection! What a treat that was! :9:

Now, I do have a few more notes than I usually give you, Todd, especially for something this short. But since I wasn't involved in the production of this play up to now (and I don't want to search through the thread), I don't know what PL notes the readers may or may not have been given, or, if there were notes, what you may have already decided to let slide. So I made notes of anything I heard in that vein as well, and you can ignore them if you want. :)

0:36 "Ed, his son, read by Larry Wilson." Underlined portion missing.
0:45 "Phoebe Ward, a witch, read by Jennifer Pratt." Underlined portion missing.
1:07 "...at a time when the people of Northampton County still belived..." I hear "Northampton Country"
1:14 Missing: "Scene. The storehouse of a cross-roads store."
11:21 This one may be my ears hearing funny, but the word "boldness" here sounds like it's been cut off. ("bold-ss") I'm not sure if it was like that in the original, or if it might have been a rogue snip. :wink:
13:21 (Not a note, but a comment. The mumbling here with Jake talking over Phoebe is phenomenal! Well done! :thumbs: )
19:14 I see that you tried to clip the "he" from "Uncle Benny. He rises." But the snip is pretty noticeable and a bit disturbing. I think you would be better to leave the whole phrase as is. (It even fits with the Carolina brand of grammar, come to think of it.)

Thank you. Glad you liked it. I will fix much of what you suggest (I had let some of the things slide - such as the cast list things - in the individual reader file PL) and repost.

Oronte in Damon

I enjoyed that :D
Hello Alan,

Yes, I could tell you liked this character :0).
PL NOTES - at 0:30 "well there you umm-aa d'ye see" s/b "well there you are, d'ye see". It doesn't make sense to my ear, no
matter how often I listen to it.

Best,
Adrian

Here is Ed, his son for When Witches Ride, with the correct voice credit.
Sorry for the delay. I had it "to do" on every recording session and I'd just forget.
This is he whole file - just easier - so you can pull the voice credit off first thing.
