This is a skit written for the six-line prompt "Am I being hazed?", which I am using to test the idea of remotely creating track-by-track recordings of plays.
Three distinguished science professors at a prestigious university are interviewing Dr. Markum for the position on their team. In doing so, they need to reveal a secret which doesn't sit well with the candidate, who then faces a difficult choice.
This recording (AmIBeingHazed-v3_vlq.mp3) 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.
