<-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.
