Re: FULL[PLAY]Mrs. Pretty and The Premier by Arthur Adams - thw

I'm sure many men play this card to endear themselves to the ladies :wink: Sonia Only to find that quite a few women have some quips for guys who brag “I’m a self-made man”. :wink: “Well, I think it’s great of you to admit it.” or “ What a horrible example of unskilled labour! ” Or in the case of o...

Re: OPEN[PLAY]The Benefit of the Doubt by Pinero - thw

I don't know what this old goat has done to rate his young trophy wife, but for what it's worth, here's the Bishop.

A six-pack short of a carton, as Sophie and Celeste Clabburn sang.

Re: How Should I Stop/Decrease Stuttering?

Firstly, I am neither doctor nor speech therapist, nor do I play one on TV. That said... I remember my Mum telling me that, back in her primary school days in the 1930s, she had a rotten teacher who tried to force her, a left-hander, to write right-handed. She started to develop a stutter, which onl...

Re: OPEN[PLAY]The Benefit of the Doubt by Pinero - thw

I'll stake a claim for the Bishop, and as a bonus, I'll tell you an anecdote of the Bishop of the North-West, an Australian Anglican Bishop of the remote Kimberley region of Western Australia. The diocese covers about two million square kilometres. This quirky real-life fellow has a few stories atta...

Re: FULL[PLAY]Mrs. Pretty and The Premier by Arthur Adams - thw

Here are my roles. I did an absolutely terrible Australian accent for this just because I wanted to - enjoy. Hey Leanne, that accent’s a lot better than you think! :shock: Unlike many non-Commonwealth attempts, you’re not trying to do it as modified Cockney. You must have been hanging out with some...

Pink or white lace suit you better?
If Coco Chanel could wear white after Labor Day, why can’t I? :wink:

PS - I've just realised that this is an all-women project (so far at least) with you, me and Patty as our DPL! No fellow men yet! ;) Hmm, this can mean one of two things.

Uh-oh, “A military bearing”, as the tank drive-train mechanic said.

The Premier may have his work cut out for him. :shock:

Premier Power, Act 1 completed: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/mrsprettyandthepremier_premierpower_1_128kb.mp3 He's a Labor Party man from the goldfields, so you'll notice his 'working class man' accent. (No, not as loud as Barnesy , Sonia! ;) ) His laconic attitude with his staff and political...

Todd: the link you're giving is to the PDF file. Is this the pdf from this book: https://archive.org/details/threeplaysforaus00adamiala/page/92 if so, I'd rather PL from that link if you don't mind, it's easier access for me. Sonia Chris, is the link above to the same document as what you gave me t...

I'll claim the maid - only female role left hahaha
Leanne, did you notice the still unclaimed female role of Mrs Cusack, friend to Mrs Pretty? It’s quite substantial.

Re: OPEN[PLAY]Mrs. Pretty and The Premier by Arthur Adams - thw

Since the estate of Wyonora is mentioned quite a few times in the play, I guess it couldn't hurt to have a "received pronunciation" of it.

What do you think, Beth? "Wy-o-NOR-ah"? https://librivox.org/uploads/xx-nonproject/wyonora.mp3

Re: OPEN[PLAY]Mrs. Pretty and The Premier by Arthur Adams - thw

Chris has suggested that the role of Gregory might suit me, so I will claim it. I cannot do an aussie accent so will have to pretend he is an English immigrant. There were a lot of them. Actually, Alan, the very first public servants in Australia were all "old lags" (ie, emancipated English convict...
