One Act Play Collection 019, by Various
Here, in our 19th collection, are 10 One Act Plays for your enjoyment. (Several of the plays took longer than one section and had to be split into two parts.) They range from a ghost story on the moors to dancing lawyers in the courtroom, from an appeal to patriotism to outright farce. All short gems to make you laugh, cry, think, or all three. (NOTE: Percy Mackaye died in 1956, Gertrude Jennings in 1958, Laurence Housman in 1959, and Effa Preston in 1975. Their plays are not PD for listeners in Europe and/or Australia, and other countries which observe copyright of author's death +70 years.) - Summary by ToddHW
This project is complete. All audio files may be found on our Librivox catalog page at https://librivox.org/one-act-play-collection-019-by-various/

This is collection 19. This collection will be limited to 10 plays. Once we have 10 this will be closed to further additions.
We now have 10 plays offered and cast so this collection is full of plays. (A new collection will start up when this collection gets finished.)

I expect all these plays to be Gender Neutral so as to avoid casting problems.

Please see the posted list below in the thread for previous plays. It would be nice to have new ones to add to the collection.

Please Note: Some plays are not PD for readers in Europe and/or Australia, and other countries which observe copyright of author's death +70 years. These are identified below and in the MW.

1. [COMPLETE] Sam Average by Percy Mackaye (1875–1956). BC for this play is ej400

Readers: to find a section to record, simply look at the sections in the MW below. 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 below the MW for what to do before, during and after your recording.

Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

Is there a deadline?
We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen. Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

New to recording? Please see our Newbie Guide to Recording for further instructions. A quick guide to our required technical settings can be found here. When you post your file, please tell the BC what name you would like to use in our catalog.

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

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!

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 10 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)

Hello Todd! I'd like to do:

Sam Average by Percy Mackaye
Link to the text: https://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/37970/pg37970-images.html#page_085
And a link to the collection it's in https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/37970
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percy_MacKaye (1875–1956)
I'll need 6 roles
Original publication date: 1912 (I believe, there's no link to it on wikipedia, this comes from the copyright on gutenberg for it).

And characters:
Narrator
Sam Average (appears as "The Figure" in the text).
Joel
Andrew
Ellen
The Voice

I'll do the editing and PL parts :thumbs:
Let me know if there's any additional information I need!
Thanks

I would like to do a one act play, including handling the editing of course but PLing is quite difficult for me so would anyone be willing to serve as a DPL for my project? This would be for the individual roles not just for the final edit

Great. You will have more luck asking for DPL help if you provide info about the play so a prospective volunteer can look at the script.

Alright, I guess I will come back when I have decided on a play then, I thought it would be best to see if anyone was interested in being DPL first. I compiled a list of ones from your links ruling out non-PD ones or ones already done, Alan also suggested one but I don't know if he intends to do it himself and someone else suggested one but I haven't looked at that collection yet or your last link to gutenberg authors who did one-act plays, it is quite time consuming but I am getting there slowly

May I read The Figure in "Sam Average?"

May I also read Giuseppe in "Men of Destiny?"

Thank you!

Another question for you, Todd--how many is TOO many roles for a one-act play? I have one that has 11, including stage directions. I wondered if I got it listed early in the play collection if we'd be more likely to fill it, but...I also don't want to hold up an entire play collection for a couple of roles.

11 is not too many. Having a lot of roles increases the effort to edit, but it also makes the roles a bit shorter and perhaps more enticing to some people to select.

The "last" play in collection 18 is one of the shorter ones there, with only 4 roles. You never know what will get done first.

Thanks, Todd

Okay the play I would like to do is The Judgement of Indra by Dhan Gopal Mukerji (https://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/36984/pg36984-images.html#THE_JUDGMENT_OF_INDRA) which is 3167 words with 4 characters plus stage directions, it's basically about a monk having his faith tested.

Runners up are The Clod by Lewis Beach (https://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/3068/pg3068-images.html#link2H_4_0004) and The Proposal by Anton Chekhov (https://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/7986/pg7986-images.html#link2H_4_0003), I'd be willing to do either of these instead if someone would be willing to serve as my DPL but just not for Judgement of Indra

Hi Inkell
I can DPL this for you. Looks like an unusual play but will be interesting :wink:
