Thanks Edd!

If any other playwrights have suggestions on how to script telephone conversations please let me know.

I like Edd's thinking. Yes, the actor might appreciate being privy to the second side of the conversation, but all things considered it's probably better if I do the work insead of assuming the actor will (hehe).

Another choice is whether to use line, ellipsis or parenthetical breaks in the character's dialogue to indicate that he's listening to the second side of the conversation. Hmmm...
