Where do we go on Librivox to advertise for a new or used VW?

Cheers,
Chris
Killer Kitty has sweet-talked me into it. You won't get a VW, but a Jeep Wrangler...

I'll have a go at Valentine White if you'll have me.

all right Leanne, wonderful performance, yet again :9: you have the perfect accent to go with this upper-class debutante. (unfortunately I as your "mother" don't, but Kitty T. has a more humble upbringing anyway)

I love the sobbing when you say you even cry over a kitten. Sounds so genuine. :thumbs: And I think the enthusiasm over the marbles game is really well acted out. A young lady who is happy to forget her stiff manners for a short time.

All three acts PL ok.

Only one thing I need to mention:

> for the voice credit, could you please include the entire character description: “Imogen, her daughter, read by Leanne Yau” you can do that in the 3rd act, no need to re-upload this one, since there are no other errors.

thanks

Sonia

Here is Brooke, the insipid son wallowing in debt.

I was not expecting this to be my smallest Pinero role to date, but it was. Brooke gets a lot of airtime in the first act, then sort of pops in and out for the rest of the play. So good news for Sonia, since she doesn't have much to PL. :lol:

you're right :shock: it seemed to me he would have more to say too. But at least the things he says are well voiced by you :thumbs: You're a sort of foppish dandy which Oscar Wilde may have wanted in his entourage :mrgreen: And what's with this compulsion to say "what" in almost each of his sentences ? This was getting a bit annoying in the long run :lol:

Loved the entire performance :9: All acts PL ok

thanks Tomas

There's only one thing for it now, Tomas. Shoot your cuffs, order a double martini, and get stuck into the Stutely role.

I think acting the Stutely too much was part of his debt problems :roll:
No, no, this boy is grounded for two weeks now. Go and play with someone else, Bugsy. :mrgreen:

Don't blame me. I was off scouting good canal sites and, well, doing important GCMG stuff!

Thanks, Pater

"I read this as "Venus or Mars"."

That would explain the generous tip to the gondolier.

Chris

P.S. Ground Control to Major Todd ... remember to bring the troupe back some souvenirs.
