My plays are gender neutral. So if Parlourmaid you want, Parlourmaid you be. Kitty will be picturing you as she speaks her lines (I'm glad mine are already in the can!).
:shock: I 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. :hmm: Did you check her credentials before hiring her ?

Sonia
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.

Thanks, Todd

hmmm...right...I remember. Well, let's not discuss this in front of the servants.

:lol: 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. :hmm:

We'll see how it works out. At least I'm confident you don't need to buy a new necklace with her :mrgreen:

Here are the Viscount and The Master.
> at about 8:16: missing lines p. 22 bottom: “Forgive me for reminding you, Mrs Hatchett

> at 9:27: you repeat “Worrington” after I prompt you to say “Worringham”, but this is optional. I think we can even let that stand, as it seems to be a running gag that the master constantly mis-names everybody LOL I especially loved his names for Gale :lol:

> at about 9:46: missing line p. 25 middle: “Don’t lose your dignity

thank you Leanne, your Julia is quite a mischief maker. :lol: 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 that :)

PL ok

exellent patches and all is PL ok now. I started working on the mistress yesterday, but the role is actually very challenging, so I couldn't finish in one go. Will probably be done before the weekend though.

So 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 :lol: 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 :mrgreen:

now I need to come down again...

Hope I didn't miss any lines:

wow, this was a really good performance, Nemo :thumbs: Mr Harpin really seems to have an anger-management problem :lol: you really bring out the long-time supressed rage of the jilted lover quite well.

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.

I kept wondering if something was going to be made of the fact that I am named Ernest, but alas no.

Perfectly read and PL OK. This will be delightful to assemble!

Thanks, Todd

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. :9:

:lol: I kept thinking why Pinero used the name Ernest for the husband. Maybe there was some intention in it
