Hi, Sarah,

I've just about gotten Twelfth Night off my desk (waiting on some PL-ing and a couple of missing lines), so I thought I pop over and see if you wanted any help with anything here?

Er, yeah, it's been kind of slow around here... and I was doing so well while Caet was away. :oops: Anyway, there's no point doing anything with the third play (Furies) since I have it all slapped together now except for sadclown's part.

Could you perhaps PL Jc's part(s), and also render your opinion... do you think we can edit these together and use them for the chorus of women, or should we add one more voice?

Thanks so much for the offer!

Hello,

If the part's still available, and you'll have me, I'd like to read #25, Pylades.

Will be my first dip into Greek tragedy! Should I be scared??!

Welcome, Simon! Pylades is all yours. It is only 3 lines long, so no worries. Think of it as dipping your toes in the side of the pool.

FYI for everyone - I'll be internet-less for the weekend, so won't be able to answer further posts until Monday.

Went to go read my part today, but could not find it!

What are the lines that the "Attendant Woman" is supposed to say? I couldn't find any... :(

My toes are dipped in tragedy from Greece;
To read its iambs five I was most pleased.


Original Aeschylus, I swear.

Have I just committed the worst assonance on Librivox? Although, some of Coleridge is quite bad... :p

They're doing haiku on Macbeth; please let's not have a verse-off!!

Enough of my gibbering. Here's Pylades:

sadclown - here's the deal with your part:
smijen wrote:This part is a bit odd, as it's not marked "Attendant". It's actually the chant at the very end of the whole trilogy - very short. It's meant to be a chorus of attendants, so if you'd like, you can read it 2 or 3 times in slightly different voices and we'll layer them together (like we're doing for Jc's part in the Libation Bearers). If you do that, just set yourself a good rhythm, or listen to recording 1 as you do recording 2, etc., so that they'll sound OK layered on top of each other. Post here or PM me with any questions. :)
No obligation re multiple voices... one person is OK with me if that's what you'd like to do.

Simon and Annoying Twit - I have committed the cardinal sin of BC'ing... forgetting to put something in the magic window. :oops: Simon, I started to download your part and realized I already had a Pylades recording. Sure enough, Annoying Twit claimed it and recorded it and I neglected to put it in the window.

I am really really sorry... they are both excellent and I would love to have you both as readers. There is still the 13-line part of Aegithus' servant (marked slave in the body of the text) and I would be thrilled if one of you were willing to read that part. Otherwise, I'll have to go with Annoying Twit's Pylades since he claimed it first.

Hi smijen -

No worries! As I'm not catholic, I'll let you off! ;)

I'll claim the Servant/Slave then if that's OK.

Wooh!

Yup. :) Haven't asked Catherine to move us yet, since I'm not sure about cubistdog... I've just PM'd him. (But feel free to move us if you'd like, Catherine.)

Actuallly, for Dramatic Works, we don't generally move the topic threads. What we *do* do is edit the title of the thread with FULL: up front to let folks know that we're full up. I'll go do that now. :)

Thanks, Catharine. And for everyone's interest, cubistdog is about 2/3 done the chorus of old men, so I think we're getting there!
