That would be amazing, April. Thank you! :-)

Both are fairly small roles, but I think 2nd Servant is the meatier of the two... so I gave you that one.

Excellent, thanks!

ETA - Just checking - the act 3 lines are only on p 59, and the act 5 ones are on p 86?

I... think so? The servants don't say much, to be honest. Sorry about that. :?

All right, I think we've let this project wither on the vine long enough. :-) Here's a couple of narration files for your consideration.

thanks Chuck, great to see some new files in this project :9: I love your stage directions, because you speak with such an ominous foreboding voice for most of the time here, so the audience will really stay in the Gothic mood throughout the play :thumbs:

I have a few notes to make though:

for Act 1:

> at 5:02: (p. 7) missing line: “Manent Theobald and Hartman”

> at about 5:35: (p. 9) missing line: “Pacing to and fro, and then stopping and musing as before”

> at about 5:38: (p. 10) “striking his breast in despair” (this line is at 5:50 and needs to be placed before)

for Act 2:

> at 2:12: (p. 26) “Theobald, to Hartman, aside”, missing Theobald here, since it is the beginning of his speech

> at 6:46: (p. 43) “Exeunt severally” – you say “severely”, but the meaning here is that there are several people exiting, not that they are exiting in a severe manner :hmm:

That's fine -- I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something, so the PL isn't like "where's this line?" for 15 things each.

Holy crap, what's going on! :shock:

Welcome to the project, Roger and Craigos! Thank you so much for contributing. I appreciate the help and am glad to have these two quite pivotal roles finally cast. :-) You guys rock!

Anyone want to check out the last remaining roles? I promise, they're quite fun. :-)

(And for the record, I do have plans to do more Baillie plays in the future. I'm particularly keen on doing The Dream, a weird, proto-Lynchian gothic drama where a series of prophetic dreams help a group of monks apprehend a killer. It's... pretty wild.)

CRAIG !!!! this is exactly what I was hoping for !!!! You got totally into the character of this twat LOL I was nearly split in half when you said "I care not for this boasting" when all he does is boasting :lol: And the difference in his boastful behaviour at the beginning and then when he meets his father he is much less exuberant. Excellent nuances there. :thumbs:

Also no errors, nothing missing. This is a perfect PL ok. Looking forward to the next part. You do know you will not have a happy end, right ? :?

Thanks so much for taking on this part.

My current mood.

Seriously. Everything started happening at once. This is great! :-) At this rate, the project will be done by the end of the month.

Thanks Tomas! Another excellent performance. You sound so wonderfully devious. :-) Can't wait to hear the rest.
