Below are the missing lines -- with NEW time stamps to make your Spot PL easier.

I missed these when marking the lines, and then I really don't see them when I edit.
I have one more step that I will add that I think will catch these. I'll run that on Act IV before I do the final edit, and will use it on future stage directiions

> at 22:20: “AGNES. [Arranging his neck handkerchief.]” – you omitted “neck”, may be trivial, I’m not sure if it’s the same thing – probably optional

> at about 23:51: missing line “Beating her hands together passionately

> at about 26:27: missing line “Rising, pointing to the book

> at about 27:10: missing line “beating her breast and forehead

the ending was indeed high dramatic :shock: I wonder how the actress is grabbing the book from the fire on stage !

I hope it they didn't use real fire!
Those action scenes can be dangerous. I once drew blood in a dress rehearsal. Good thing the prop was just a letter opener and not a real dagger. :shock: "Suppose I were to draw a dagger from my sleeve, and make to kill the prisoner with it!"

Oh, no, I almost forgot to upload the new file. Now that would not have been nice.

thank you, Larry, for always making my job easier :9:

Everything perfectly PL ok now. And you gave us some extra emphasis in all the drama, for good measure :thumbs:

:shock: I actually think that has happened already. Wasn't there some famous actor that got accidentally shot by real bullets on the set ? Although one could wonder about accidentally there...maybe it was a disguised killing.

Alright! Then, here is Act IV.
Larry ! I don't know what new method you have to read, but it worked. This Act is PL ok on the first go. *chimes are ringing all over the land*

I agree, the missing "outer" is not really important. Wonderful job, and you were quite dramatic again in some parts. :thumbs:

The stage directions are in for this play. Only 2 characters to finish and then we're done. :9:

Thank you :) on to new shores for you...

Oh, I fixed it and edited the post. But, all is good.

Finally got one on the first go. :mrgreen:

The extra pass was a lot easier than recording, patching, and spot PL ......

This is one I'm going to listen to for sure.

"outer door"

After I uploaded it, the house emptied out, so I could grab the minute to do it.

You are correct - this play is full as it says in the title. But there are others with open roles.

Thanks, Todd

Just a quick question. Todd, I know you don't place a lot of value on pronunciation, but I just noticed that I seem to be the only one who pronounces Fortune with an Italian accent "for -toon- ay". Will this be too confusing? Gertrude does say the name a lot. I thought he was Italian because he has some kind of an accent, and Gertrude tries to speak in Italian, so she would be the type who would try to pronounce names in their native accents. I recorded both versions, but I chose the Italian for my edit. But if this will confuse the listener, I can edit back in the English pronunciation.

Fine with me if you leave in the Italian.

Yay! Finally Mrs. Getrude Thorpe...
great performance, TJ :clap: especially the tearful ending lines are very nicely acted out. Gertrude means well. Somehow the ending leaves me to wish to know how it all went on afterwards.

Well, no missing lines, as far as I can see and everything perfectly in character. PL ok.

Just one note...there is no voice credit, but I suppose you want to include that one in the first act probably. :)

Thanks !

Sonia
