    <-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Hey, Sarah. When does your play open... the one you wrote and are directing?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> In one week.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> And how’s it coming along?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:->Well, the rehearsals have been going pretty well... there's just one problem.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> What's that?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> We have a guy named Bill playing one of the supporting roles, one of the minor characters...
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> [following] OK...
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> And he just can't remember his lines.
    All the other actors have their parts memorized... except Bill.
    We'll be in the middle of rehearsing a big scene and he'll forget what he's supposed to say next.
    I thought he'd eventually improve, but now I'm not sure he'll be ready for opening night.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Oh, no. That's not good.
    What can you do at this point?
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well...I could replace him.
    There are other actors on campus... actors who could play the part.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, since it's such a minor role another actor could probably learn the part in time.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> That's true. It's just that I don't know how he'd feel about that.
    Removing him from the play could hurt his feelings. And he was really looking forward to being in it.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> I see. Well, could you...
    I mean maybe another thing you could do is spend time with him after rehearsals... you know...
    work with him to help him learn and remember his lines.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I could do that.
    But there're other parts of the production I try to take care of after rehearsals.
    So it'll take away from other things that I need to do before opening night.


Briefly summarize the problem the speakers are discussing. Then state which solution you would recommend. Explain the reasons for your recommendation.
