Candida by George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950).

This project can be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/candida-by-george-bernard-shaw-2/
A wonderful play -been on my list for years. I will be reading all parts, men and women and children in the best dramatic fashion I can muster and with great gusto so.....it will be an, uh......interesting listening experience. ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4023
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!


    Magic Window:



    BC Admin ===========================================

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    END of recording:

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

Act II is in the magic window. The plot thickens! I have discovered that this was a very successful play for Shaw in America but not in England. :hmm:

Thank you for your encouragement Betty. This as proved a very difficult play to read, it must have been his first. But thank you anyway.
