Been working hard on the stage directions, and I think I've got them all in order.
thank you Larry, that was quite a lot of stage directions. Wonderfully narrated again, emphasizing with the right emotions at any given moment.
I have a few corrections to add though:
PL notes for Act 1
> from 0:22-1:25
: for some reason you have the introduction to Racine's Britannicus in here.
This can all be cut out
Question for Todd
: do you want the long introduction note read as well ? So far Larry hasn't included it. (update
: no introduction note required)
> from 1:30 -2:36
: for all the characters, could you please say the full description
as you see in the book, and also in the MW. ("aged 18" and such). If for some reason the reader disappears without recording this, Todd can grab insert the narrator's lines there
> from 2:39-2:43
: "also a lay sister, two monitors and several other nuns as desired" – can also get cut out
, we don't need to mention roles that are not speaking roles
PL notes for Act 2
> at 0:01
: "Interlude, spoken by the poet
" – the LV intro disclaimer should be at the beginning of each section, so the interlude needs to be copied at 0:27
. Then to show that the interlude is over, I would also add here "Act 2"
before launching into the description of the scene with "Parlour of a convent."
> at 7:25
: (p. 48) "Teresa
, sincerely" – name needs to be included, as this voice description should come at the beginning of the speech
> at 9:10
: (p. 55) "Sister Joanna of the Cross
, interrupting" – same here
> at 9:52
: (p. 57) "Sister Joanna of the Cross
, seizing her hand" – same here
