Well, I figured it's about time for me to start my bit for this show. The Preface/Prologue is uploaded, but still missing two voice credits.

I've also recorded stage directions for acts 1 and 2, but I won't be uploading those for a separate PL. I'll just submit the edited acts when the time comes.

This is Lady Truman Acts 1, 2. I still sound a little bit hoarse to my own ears, but I think it's acceptable.

Great! I'll PL now!

I just finished recording a very long section of my own. 36 minutes, not counting flubs and retakes. My voice needs a rest! :roll:

Thank Beth! So far so good. Won't be long now. TJ tells me that she started recording her role some time ago, but got pulled away by something else. But she's getting back to it now. :)

Act 4! I think I'm going to have to stop now though, as Act 5 plus Epilogue will be a long read, and the dramatics of the end of Act 4 have pretty much done for my voice. I can redo the last line if you think it's too scratchy.

The last line is rather raspy, but I think it works, for a woman who's seeing the ghost of her husband in front of her eyes! :wink: Act 4 is PL ok. I'll get started pasting these together, in anticipation of the last role. And it looks like I already have everything I need for act 3, since the butler does not appear.

Here's Act 5 and Epilogue! It took me three days of recording to get it this clear, I'm afraid.

So sorry you're having vocal troubles. :( And I'm afraid I can't quite give this the PL ok just yet, either. I've been using the University of Michigan text mostly, as it's more convenient, but it seemed like a strange place to end the epilogue, so I went and double checked the archive scan, and sure enough, there's one final page that's missing from the UM text. Please have a look, and add on the rest of the Epilogue when you are able. It's page 490: https://archive.org/details/miscellaneouswor00addiuoft/page/490

I agree - I thought it was a very odd place to end! I don't think I can do this today, maybe tomorrow.

No hurry, thank you! Still waiting on our butler as well, and to be honest, I haven't finished recording all of the stage directions either! :lol:

Three out of four butler acts recorded. I'm having the opposite problem, as I am trying to make his voice raspy and it doesn't always come out that way... :D
