I'm not sure whether this is the stackexchange website for this, but I'm in the process of writing a play for a competition. The main character often has asides (where she expresses an idea or thought to the audience directly without the other characters hearing her). I'm not sure how to exactly to insert/present these. Any insight on the matter could be helpful.
By means of example:
AL (Rolls eyes) I still don’t trust you, or your story. But, follow me. (Starts walking towards the stairwell)
CANDI (Aside) That was easier than I thought. My dad always says that the hardest part is getting your enemies to let you in. But, I’m already half way there. The only one that’s suspicious of me now is Al, but I can handle him. I sense he’s already loosening up. Something tells me choosing allies is going to pose a greater challenge.
AL (Calls over his shoulder) If you don’t want to come, I have no problem telling Caster you lost interest.
Is this the correct way to present an aside? If not, what is the proper way to do that to avoid the audience's confusion?
