This is a skit written for the six-line prompt "That's your line, though", which I am using to test the idea of remotely creating track-by-track recordings of plays.
Fred confides his insecurities about his (telemarketing) job to Rose, a fellow telemarketer, while in the boiler room. The Boss intercedes, and for better or worse, gives them inspiration.
Notes for the audio file "full skit: That_s_your_line__though_v3-vlq.mp3":
This recording was generated during the Covid19 pandemic by the Archipelago Virtual Theater. Individual performers voiced their parts separately, offline, and the tracks were edited together into a single performance. The process was iterated three times, ultimately allowing the actors to respond to cues from the other actors who were themselves responding to what other actors were saying.
