A Play?!

Post by catrose » Tue 11. Sep 2012, 17:41

Hi All,

Umm, my first Legamus post? Hmm. Could we do a play by any chance? Anyone interested?

I've found a fun one by J.M.Barrie (published 1928) called Half an Hour. It's about a young wife tried to run away with her lover, but something goes wrong. here it is in PG Canada: http://www.gutenberg.ca/ebooks/barriejm ... -00-h.html

Oh and it's only one act.

Next suggestion (moving swiftly on....I think this is a better idea. At least, it isn't a one-act play!) The Improper Duchess by James B. Fagan. It is a "modern comedy in 3 Acts" about The Duchess of Tann who moves to Washington DC to secure a loan from from a bunch of crooked oil executives.

If you don't mind non-natives, I am always up for a play (though I am not really any good - so I usually only take small parts where it's not so obvious :D)

and I would recommend starting with the one act play... it's shorter and has less characters... there are much much fewer reader's on legamus than on librivox and even on librivox it can take a while for a play to finish

I agree! One Act Play it is! If we get anymore comments on this, I think I'll set it up next week! :D

P.S. You were very good in Ivanov!

oh hi cat!! Welcome to legamus :D

Maybe we can try the audacity features to make various different voices to fill the roles!?

This will really be a collection of non-native accents. I like it! :D

Cat, would you say you speak English with a Welsh accent, or there's just no such thing?

It would be a brilliant collestion of non-native accents! :)Yes, I have a very Welsh accent. :D And Audacity could be used to change our voices :)
