Hello! I still have problems with "BEAT" anyone can help me!? I have a lot of "BEAT" in a theatre play and I don´t know the best meaning. I´m sending a couple of examples: 1.Man:are you gonna live me? Woman: Yes Man: Why? Woman: Sam. Beat. Man: Sam? He´s a kid. 2.Girl: I was in the middle of nowhere. Man: what were you doing in the middle of nowhere? Girl: travelling. Beat. Man: alone? Girl: with... a male. Beat. I´m sure it can´t mean Silence or Pause because both are used in other parts of the play. Any idea? Thank you!
