I need a line for Act 2, for Lord Hardy, hidden by a stage direction:
Dear Tom Campley, this is kind! You are an extraordinary man indeed, who in the sudden accession of a noble fortune can be still yourself, and visit your less happy friends.
Thanks, Todd
Sorry, I hadn't spotted this. Here is act 2 again https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/funeralorgriefalamode_lordhardy_2_128kb.mp3

It's exactly the same as my previous act 2 file, except that the missing line is at the end. I didn't edit it into its proper place in the file, because I think you have already started editing and -- at least in my own workflow -- it would be more convenient to have anything new at the end.

Finished Act 2! This time I hopefully have the correct file name, if not let me know!

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/funeralorgriefalamode_trusty_2_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 0:23 minutes.

I'll be back a bit later to record some more!

Sorry this post has a ton of different little snippets, but do you guys have policies against recording multiple characters? If not I could read the two small leftover parts, but if not thats totally cool too!

Thanks,
Campbell

Thank you, and file name is correct.

I prefer not to have people read multiple characters, particularly not in the same act.

Thanks, Todd

nothing to fix at all, Campbell, Trusty is wonderfully done. I love the emotion you're putting into the speech he gave about his first mistress. :9: Everything perfect and PL ok, for Acts 2 and 4

one act left to do...

Thanks

Todd: Acts 1 and 2 are ready to be assembled. Only a few voice credits missing for Act 1 which can easily be pasted into at the end.

When I assemble a play, I do it mostly visually, listening only to the first or last few words to make sure I am putting the right lines in sequence.

Thus I really did not know what was going on in parts of this play until I just finished and then listen to Act 1 from end to end while I adjusted the gaps and volumes between readers.

WHAT a RIOT! This play is great, and your readings - and I include the stage directions including preface when I say this - are fabulous. I am so glad to have found this playwright, and to know he has a bunch more plays we can do too.

(Act 1 is ready for final PL except for some missing voice credits.)

Thanks, Todd

excellent, Campbell, a wonderful ending to the performance as well. :thumbs: Totally PL ok and as endearing as the other acts. Especially the near-tearful exclamation that he would welcome old age was very moving.

Thanks for participating and I hope I hear from you again soon.

Todd: I know you mentioned Trusty should read the ALL line, but since they reply to something Trusty has said, I think the "How" here need not be included in the group. Trusty wouldn't reply to his own comment.
