my eyes will bleed....
Huh! Did I shave my legs for this?
I didn't hire her! Ever since that - er - misunderstanding back in Brighton - you remember, it was about the time I gave you that very nice diamond necklace? - you have engaged all the female domestic staff. I must note that this parlourmaid is the only one I've known that can carry 6 full coal scuttles at one time, a definite time savings in the mornings.Kitty wrote: ↑March 27th, 2018, 11:22 pmI need to get my role in before I listen to this....
Todd, dear, don't you think our new parlourmaid has quite a deep voice ? And the poor girl is desperately, but ineffectually, trying to camouflage some facial hair with too much cheap make-up. I fear she may have a hormonal problem. Did you check her credentials before hiring her ?
hmmm...right...I remember. Well, let's not discuss this in front of the servants.
good thing. And now I remember: the dressmaker of Lady Twombley, one Miss Mauricette, warmly recommended this parlourmaid to me. I suppose I can trust her judgement.I must note that this parlourmaid is the only one I've known that can carry 6 full coal scuttles at one time, a definite time savings in the mornings.

thank you Leanne, your Julia is quite a mischief maker. I almost pitied the countess when you so obviously made fun of her all the time. Excellently played, and nothing missing. Only the volume is quite low, you are almost whispering in some parts. But Todd will adjust the volume anyway, so I only make a note in the MW for thatleanneyauyau wrote: ↑March 28th, 2018, 8:39 amhttps://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/thecountessofescarbagnas_julia_moliere.mp3
wow, this was a really good performance, Nemo Mr Harpin really seems to have an anger-management problem you really bring out the long-time supressed rage of the jilted lover quite well.NemoR wrote: ↑March 30th, 2018, 1:16 pmThe jilting (and angry) Mr Harpin:

No errors or missing lines. Totally PL ok. Thanks, great job !
Oh, you poor woman. You must need a little lie down now. Shame you can't take Dolores's people management and persuasion skills with you as you go from project to project.Kitty wrote: ↑March 30th, 2018, 8:48 amSo Todd, here is your mistress. Phew, this was a long and challenging role. I think the desperate hysterical laughter at the end was not altogether faked I would have loved to know the rest of our servants from hell, unfortunately I only had TJ, Alan and Chris so far...but I think the thought of them was enough to picture the rest and get into the play
now I need to come down again...
Hope I didn't miss any lines:

oh you are so right ! Or maybe, seeing that the Odd Man is the only one still remaining in the end, the secret is to hire MALE servants from now on. I'll go shopping for some (good-looking, well muscled) valets soon.
I kept thinking why Pinero used the name Ernest for the husband. Maybe there was some intention in itI kept wondering if something was going to be made of the fact that I am named Ernest, but alas no.
