SCRIPTS: You can read or say anything you like for your sample recording, but here are a few pieces to choose from if you're not sure what to say... _____________________________________________________
Excerpt from: IT'S RALPH - by Hugh Whitemore: Poor old Ralph. I'd never seen anyone dead before. Actually, that's not true. There was someone. My Dad's auntie. She was funny in the head. She thought she could flap her arms up and down and fly like a bird. They had her put away. But then, when she got older, Dad thought she should come and live with us. ______________________________________________
Excerpt from: UP'N UNDER - by John Godber: It's a very funny thing, when I was playing at Loughborough I never got nervous. I never had a thought about the game but tonight I'm like a bag of nerves. I've been to the toilet, back here to bed - I'm going to the toilet again in a minute. I'm sweating, sweat's dripping down my brow, even my palms are wet. I'll have to hope that I can, well... drift off to sleep. ____________________________________________________
Excerpt from: VISITING HOUR - by Richard Harris: Make assumptions. We all do. I certainly do, I'd be a liar if I said otherwise. I see Tracy in the bed opposite scratching her tattoos and moving her mouth as she reads the Sun and, yes, I make assumptions. It's whether we're prepared to break those assumptions down. At least we owe it to each other to try. ____________________________________________________
Excerpt from: ENEMIES - by Maxim Gorky: This place is oppressive. Everything's crumbling, it makes my head spin in the strangest way. One has to tell lies, and I don't like doing that. But I've just told a lie - I said I'd talk to Nadya about hiding something - she'd have agreed, too. But I've no right to start her on that road. ____________________________________________________
