Re: Dramatic Reading (DR) Suggestions

The difficulty is with the source; the text that you link to has obviously been reformatted and may have been edited since its original Victorian publishing date. The Pearl doesn't seem to be available on Gutenberg yet. You'd need to find a scan of the original or, at least, a version published befo...

I've given the link to a blog review of this one, with a link to a short story, The Haunted House, on archive.org https://harriet...

Re: [SOLO] London Labour etc., Vol 1 -Mayhew-ans

Thanks, Gill; I'll correct all of these in a day or two. I have a sore throat and inflamed sinuses at the moment, so I wouldn't be able to get a voice match.
