Well, by the end of the afternoon, I got my voice back enough to record! Yay - this was fun. In the Intro I included "Act 2". It would be easy for me to delete that if you don't want it there. I figured easier to delete than to add in later.
yes, you can cut out the "Act 2" in your voice credit, it won't get used like that. The voice credit is always without "act" inserted.



Great job, but you are missing a few lines at the end of the act. Also, I'd like you to insert 2 longer breaks in two places:

> at 1:25: (p. 23) you forgot to leave a break of 2 seconds between these quotes: “It says here, Mrs Cronk (... pause for narrator ...) in this advertisement”

> at 1:46: (p. 30) "if it's not too much trouble (...stage directions...) it's quite early yet" - same here, you need to remember to leave a long break even in the middle of your sentence, if there is a stage direction to be inserted. It will make Todd’s job easier if he doesn’t have to fiddle too much around small spaces. This one is very short, but still long enough to easily cut and paste, so here it's optional, but the previous one has no room at all and would make editing tricky

> at about 1:54: (p. 33 & 34) four missing lines in the final pages of this act:

> This rose du barry looks smartest to me.
> Why, it’s past twelve, I do declare.
> How any decent woman, let alone a widow, could be seen dead in one of these shameful things beats me.
> Good-morning !

thank you :)

So sorry I missed those lines. I read and re-read that act many times and did totally miss them. And I actually tried to leave a 3-second break each time. Darn! I'll get those fixes done as soon as possible this week. I am very grateful for your PL!

this does it indeed :thumbs: thank you so much for this performance. Compared to other characters, she's doesn't appear that much in the play, but I love it that you still instilled her with a distinctive character. It will make those scenes absolutely great. :9: I think Act 2 will definitely be the funniest act of the play.

PL ok now. Thank you, and I hope to hear you in another play soon !

a very short part, but you took out the most of it, Todd. This butler is a snobbish import from England, I'm guessing, well aware of his high status in the butlering league. :mrgreen: Excellent job. I was peeling my eyes to find another line or two for him in the two acts, but I think you caught them all.

PL ok. Thanks

Sonia

merci, Pauline, this is absolutely well done. No need for any pronunciation corrections. In fact, your slight French accent makes this role wonderfully charming and unique, I can picture Mrs Clibborn as a French immigrant to Australia now and Tony Clibborn fell for her charms a few years back :mrgreen: With time of course the love has cooled off a bit :lol:

You conveyed well your distaste for Mrs Dangar here, throwing a bit of acid into your voice ;) All in all, perfectly done. Thank you so much for taking part. :9: I hope it's not the last time !

This is PL ok.

Thank you.

Aren't all Australian accents, by definition, ....

excellent job, Leanne, this was a big role ! And you made Baby much angrier and firmer than I expected her to be, but it's an interesting approach. 8-) Well done, all in all. Act 3 is already PL ok.

As for accent, I'm not a good judge of that, to me it sounds fine, and anyway, Baby could well have been a British expat now living in Sydney ;)

PL notes for Act 1:

> at about 16:12: (p. 16) missing line, wrongly assigned to John, but I’m fairly sure this is Baby replying, since it doesn’t make sense that John would be speaking 3 sentences in a row: “Oh, two months or so. I can’t really remember.

PL notes for Act 2:

> at about 0:05: (p. 26) missed line: “Yes, delightful.

> at 8:28: (p. 32) repeat “keep him silent for a day” – one version can be cut out

thanks

Sonia

Here is Tossie. This was an interesting part. I'm not sure I understand her seeming to change her mind so quickly when she's talking with Mr. Thong, but I think she may be right about him. I'll have to listen to the whole play when it's ready and find out.

I didn't know what to do with the word distingey. :? I gave it my best shot, but any suggestions on that bit would be most welcome, because I don't really understand what that might mean.
