    1. How to volunteer to BC a play:
      This is a great opportunity for anyone who's always wanted to BC a dramatic reading but isn't quite ready to do a full-length play. (Of course it's open to experienced BCs as well!) Please note that if you propose a play for inclusion in the collection, you are responsible either for editing, proof-listening and coordinating it yourself, or for finding other volunteers to fill these roles. Volunteers outside the USA: Be aware that some of the plays are still protected by copyright law some places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years).

      Please look at the list of plays that have previously been submitted before choosing a play to co-ordinate. Please claim your play in the thread; You will be the BC for your play. I will put files in the MW and keep that up to date but you are expected to Proof Listen submitted parts and then edit the play together when all parts are submitted. This collection is capped at 12 plays. Each BC needs to provide the following information about each play:

      * Title and author
      * PD text link
      * Link to author on Wikipedia, and death date, if known
      * Link to title on Wikipedia
      * Number of roles (including narrator) this project will have
      * Original publication date
      * The list of characters in your plays so when we have a MW I can set up your sections properly!

      If you would like to claim a role yourself please do so. Below are some resources you can use to find a play, but don't feel limited to these. Also, remember to check what has already been recorded in the previous One-Act Play Collections (see next post in this thread)

      Fifty Contemporary One-Act Plays: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/36984

      The Atlantic Book of Modern Plays: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16435

      Washington Square Plays: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3068

      Comtemporary One Act Plays http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/37970

      King Arthur's Socks and Other Plays by Floyd Dell http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/6587?msg=welcome_strangerNot PD for Europe/Australia

      Project Gutenberg also has a list of many authors who have written one-act plays: http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/One_Act_Plays_(Bookshelf)
      Readers: to find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are “up for grabs.” Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you’d like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.

    2. Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard. Please Listen against the text to make sure that all lines have been read.

      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!

I am thinking to begin with that I will need about 65 sections and then I can add them as needed.

Thanks

Hi Erin
Its always a tough one to call really because if for any reason people have to withdraw then it has to be picked up by myself. Having said that under the new set up where by I am going to send it to catalogue once 10 of the 12 are complete this should be ok. Let me know what your other play is so I can set it up thanks.

I've just read "Attuned" - it's brilliant! And not PD for me... :(
Just a note: There is a single line at the end for a "voice", actually Grace's father, so unless you'd want the narrator to read this one as well...


Speaking of narrator, I'd like to narrate for "Mosada" please. Not enough female roles in this one, and I definitely don't sound like a young girl anymore.
