Later, his friend Robby asked him, "Have you seen the script for the play?"

随后,他的朋友罗比问他:“你看过剧本了吗?”

Yes. The title is The Lost Glove -it's a comic play, replied Peter.

“看过了。戏名叫《失去的爱情》——是一部喜剧。”彼得回答说。

Robby said, "I want to play the part of the hermit because the hermit gets to talk with an accent!"

罗比说:“我想演里面的隐士,因为那个角色要求会方言!”

I want the lead role of the barber. I didn't know you liked acting. I thought you liked choir better, said Peter.

“我想演主角理发师。我不知道你也喜欢演出,我以为你喜欢唱诗班呢,”彼得说。

Acting is also a hobby of mine. Do you want to practice with me? The basement at my house is quiet. It's perfect! Robby replied.

“表演也是我的一个爱好。你想和我一起练习吗?我家的地下室很安静,是个完美的练习地!”罗比回答说。

I don't like practicing with others. It complicates the process for me, said Peter.

Actually, Peter didn't want to practice at all. The teacher would surely reserve the lead part for him. A few days later, Robby came to his house.
