Example text

Let’s read the ads, they are full of obscenities! f i r s t l i s t e n e r yawns. Oh . . how boring! . They sit hunched over, staring vacantly, yawning, gloomyfaced. t h ir d l i s t e n e r . Where are the critics hiding, for Gods sake? s e c o n d l i s t e n e r . If it takes this long, it means a hit. THE FIRST ACT s ix t h l is t e n e r . 27 Is that so. . So Miss Gudrun was a hit— Yawns. ”—which is it, really? f o u r t h l i s t e n e r . Well, we’ll see. . s ix t h l i s t e n e r .

Right of it, leading toward the alcove, the top of a staircase leading up from the vestibule, which is to be imagined as being to the right of the stage. Electric light. The sources of the upstage illumination are invisible.
