A survey

I have listened to many a Radio Play, but almost never seen a script for one.

I've seen two distinct layout types, and can't come to a conclusion as to which is better.

There's:
-------------
AGATHA; We’ve got to save Othar!
KROSP; We do?
AGATHA; Of course we do! He has no idea that he’s walking into a trap! If we don’t save him, he might be killed!
KROSP; …Is this one of those situations that involve ‘ethics’? ‘Cause I’m a cat, you know. I’ve never been very good at those.
-------------
where the text follows right after the name of the speaker

and then there's:
------------- (edited to add back all the spaces LJ stripped out)
1. MACBETH:        That will never be. Who can impress the forest?
                               Yet my heart throbs to know one thing. Tell me,
                               if your art can tell so much, - shall Banquo’s issue
                               ever reign in this kingdom?

2. SOUND:             THUNDER (2X).


3. MUSIC:               WEIRD MUSIC-UP. DUCK FOR VOICES.


4. ALL WITCHES:   Seek to know no more.

5. MACBETH:          I will be satisfied. Deny me this, and an eternal
                                 curse fall on you! Let me know!
-------------
where the text is grouped into its own column.
