Could I try reading for Geronte? A slight accent OK?

Great. And of course an accent is fine.

Thanks, Todd

My pleasure. This is all supposed to be fun. Isn't it?

(Search for "The Dreaded Sentence With Twenty Volcano Names" (TDSWTVN) in Andes and Amazon https://librivox.org/the-andes-and-the-amazon-by-james-orton/ to find an example of mis-placed zeal when I was new here and refused to give up - though I came close to leaving in frustration.... I laugh at myself now.)

Thanks, Todd

here is act 2:
and the final act. My work is done :)
and excellently done it is, Sandra :clap: no errors at all, nothing missing. Totally PL ok. And I especially love the fierceness with which you make Scapin put Géronte back in the sack :lol: it gives this sack-beating scene an even further embellishment.

And now I see I have my third Géronte-candidate to deal with...nobody wants to be beaten by me it seems :?

:clap: wonderful acting, Tovarisch :9: I was split in two with laughing, each time you moaned "What the deuce did he want to go in that galley for?" :lol: You can play the poor man's despair about losing money so wonderfully. And in the beating scene you really sound very convincing too. I'm super happy that I got such a great dialogue partner here. These two scenes will be so hilarious. :mrgreen:

(and I think I already mentioned that I love your accent :9: I really hope to hear more from you in other plays to come)

Both acts PL ok. Thank you so much for this great play-acting !

Thanks, Sonia, you are too sweet! At least with a small role, I can get it in on time! :wink:
