The String of Pearls by Unknown ( - ).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-string-of-pearls-dramatic-reading-by-unknown/
Todd is a barber who murders his customers and turns their remains into meat pies, sold at the pie shop of his partner in crime: Mrs. Lovett; Todd's barber shop is situated in Fleet Street, London, next to St. Dunstan's church, and is connected to Lovett's bakers shop in nearby Bell Yard by means of an underground passage. Todd dispatches his victims by pulling a lever while they are in his barber chair, which makes them fall backward down a revolving trapdoor, generally causing them to break their necks or skulls. In the event they are alive, he goes to the basement and "polishes them off" by slitting the victim's throat with his straight razor. Todd has a young assistant named Tobias Ragg.

    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

I have finished the scripts, but I still need a bit of correction. And I have not finished Dramatic Personade yet.

And note for readers :

There are many, many characters who appears only one chapter, but most of his/her lines are long.
But there are few characters which they have simple lines, so please look at the scripts and decide.

Thanks

Claimed Roles

Mr. Lupin
Mrs. Lovett

Jessie,
On your google docs, may I suggest that you rename chapter 1 as "01"? Same for chapters 2-9? That way all of the chapters will sort in number order.

I don't know if you are accepting readers yet, but if you are, I would like to take the role of Mr. Lupin.

I have done a bit of recording for LV, but have not done any Dramatic Readings or plays before.

Hi, Welcome to Dramatic Readings!

Great, thanks for your claim.

PS - Need MC, DPL, Part PLer and Editor!
