We had a couple no-shows at the recording session. I'll see if they're still willing to record their parts the old-fashioned way. In the meantime, we have a definite opening for Ferguson. If you'd like to record the part, please claim it, then record it like any other dramatic reading (your lines, separated by at least 2 seconds between lines).

I have only noise reduced this, since there was some background ambient. Have fun with the editing.

And thanks for asking me to participate.

All readers have confirmed their roles. Moving this to Readers Found!

I'm looking for a DPL for the final product, if anyone would be willing to do so. :)

I've assembled the play with what I have so far. All lines submitted so far are PL OK, aside from Agatha's (need a fresh copy of the recording as per PM). So far so good...

(It was fun to hear the under-the-breath laughter in some of the Zoom submissions. ;))
