I hadn't realized that Charlotte was doing all the PLing :oops:

I think I will pass on a role in this one b/c it is not a favorite play of mine...BUT...if you get to crunch time and need someone to take a role, I will be more than happy to do that.
Critical feedback is ALWAYS welcome - in the forum or via PM

I have corrected my filename for Dromio. To differentiate if you are playing Antipholus or Dromio, please put the first letter of the city they are from after their name in the filename.

Could I please read a really small part, preferably the smallest role there is? :)

Thank you for clarifying the textual issues Cat and MaryAnn. I get that a source document ready for use is any one in the Public Domain; that you are secure about in Gutenberg. And there may be actual small problems in the Gutenberg texts but nonetheless they are certainly able to be used.

Thank you,
TA.

There is nothing on the MIT site to indicate the source of their text. Each separate edition of a work can create it's own copyright. As I understand it, Mobi has taken an edition and converted it to HTML. Mobi has released the HTML into the public domain, but that doesn't mean that the source document therefore also becomes public domain. We need to confirm that the edition used by Mobi is public domain, or we need to use an edition that we can confirm is PD (either by publication date or by Gutenberg clearance).

I note that the Wikipedia site on the Mobi project states:
Moby Shakespeare contains the complete unabridged works of Shakespeare. This specific resource is not available from Project Gutenberg.
Has any other LV Shakespeare project used Mobi as a source? If so, please point me to it and I'll check the thread to see how they addressed the PD question. The two earlier versions of COE both used PG texts.

Hi Maryann,

I used the MIT as main text for my Romeo and Juliet and is in the catalogue as such: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=42807&p=803450&hilit=MIT#p803450
https://librivox.org/romeo-and-juliet-version-4-by-william-shakespeare/

However, from how I've seen how Elizabeth Klett used to catalogue Shakespeare, she used to catalogue it with the gutenburg as the online text regardless of which text she'd asked people to read from.

An example of this is the original Comedy of Errors, where E asked people to read from the OSS text, but catalogued it as the Gutenburg.

Hi Girls,
How are we pronouncing Syracuse? I've heard it pronounced loads of ways in different productions :shock:

In the first CoE, E suggested pronouncing it the American way: "SEER-uh-kyooz."

PL Notes for Dromio of whichever one's been uploaded :wink:

Act 2 - PL OK! (Well, PL hilarious!)

Act 3 - 0:50 - How are we pronouncing "Luce" for this? You pronounce it lu-chay. I think I would have said it as Loose. I cannot access archive to check how the last one was pronounced, so could you check this for me?

-rest of Act 3 PL OK. I love the country/globe scene! Always has me chuckling!

Act 4 - 0:33 - missing line "A ship you sent me to, to hire waftage"

I will PL Act 5 later :)

She's confirmed that the MIT site has been used for a number of other Shakespeare projects here at LV looking at that history, we are comfortable with the PD status of MIT's source (an 1886 edition).

Oh sorry I hadn't seen this. Thank you Tricia and Maryann :mrgreen:

The smallest role there is is the Gaoler in Act 1. (He speaks three words. :D )

Thank you! I'm Syracuse. I made a pronunciation guide, but I think you're right that it would sound better as Luce. I'll fix it. :D

Great! I'll be the Gaoler, please! (and thank you for suggesting roles for me - I find DR MWs to be eternally confusing)

Thanks Lydia! These are in the MW for prooflistening. :D

Act 3 is PL OK! Act 2 PL notes:
1:07 'as we ourselves complain' instead of 'would we ourselves complain'
1:49 'thy slave' instead of 'thou slave'
2:39 'a sunny look he would soon repair' instead of 'a sunny look of his would soon repair'
3:16 'and others touch' instead of 'that others touch'
4:24 'for now, my love,' instead of 'for know, my love'
4:35 'as take from thyself instead of 'as take from me thyself'
6:17-21 should be 'if ought possess thee from me'
6:50 repeat (you could cut it out since you're already editing) 'husband, I'll dine'
Thanks!
