Oh, for sure. I had an event over the past weekend I had to prepare for, so now that is out of the way I have a bit more time.

a great start into this play :thumbs: excellently assembled and all the characters play wonderfully. I especially love the Captain in all his rage :lol: but the entire cast was totally up to their roles. It sounds so great now listening to it all.

I have two small notes for correction:

> from 20:29-20:39: Sir Innocent Ninny's lines here "By'r lady, his worship says well: wife, we'll trouble him no longer. With your honour's leave, I'll in and see my old friend Sir John, your father that shall be." are spoken a bit too softly, compared to the rest. Maybe you could amplify this part a bit

> at 26:44-26:48: repeat of Lucida's line "and what a sin were it in me" – one version can be cut out

great job, Rob 8-) thanks

Sonia

wow you've been busy Rob :shock: so I was snuggling back here in my pillows and listening a good hour now to both acts. :9: I'll mark both perfectly PL ok. The plot is so much more comprehensible now that I hear it in its entirety :lol: Everybody played their roles to perfection. Well done !!

We can really finish this before the New Year. Have you already decided on a replacement play ? :mrgreen:

Ha! I've got a few ideas. I found a book that listed all the plays staged in London during this period, and have picked out the comedies that seem worth doing. I'll have a look through that list over Christmas and see what takes my fancy.

Thanks for the quick PL. I should have the last act done in the next day or so.

super finale :clap: though I think after what Strange did for Kate, he would have deserved her. And I so enjoyed drunk Lady Ninny :lol: But everybody was great.

We're almost there, I only have two notes to correct:

> at 8:40: missed line for Scudmore (underlined) : "By heaven, I am. Be rul'd by me in all things." - we need this line or else Bellafront's reply won't make sense :?

> at 9:52: "Bellafront aside" - I don't think she said all this as aside, because it's an explanation to everybody that she is married now. I rather think she said the last line as aside only (at 10:05) "What ease I find being unladified!" - or alternatively, it was Count Frederick who says his next line as aside (at 10:10) "What riddle's this?", but then you need a different stage direction. Maybe you find a "Count Frederick" somewhere to paste in.

The dramatis personae are all PL ok and finished. You only need to put in all the readers' names in that slot in the MW as well.

Great job, Rob ! And to the whole cast: :clap:

The missing Scudmore line is/was already in my Act 5 file - at about 1:35.

Thanks, Todd
