Did you actually change the act 2 file? Does it need to PL'd again?

Thanks, Todd

The file was misnamed in the above post. The updated Act 3 has been uploaded.

Act 2 was updated to correct the reader credit.

Cheers

ah you did reupload Act 2. You could also have added the credit in act 3. But both are PL ok now, thank you so much, Algy :)

excellent, thank you, Alan. I loved the way you talked to Clarin in your first remark to him. Quite snippish, well done. And then when Livia shows up you mutate into a starry-eyed lover :lol: so cute.

I liked it. And PL ok.

Have a nice weekend

Act 1 and Act 3 stage directions PL OK. Perfect.

Act 2: @ 5:18 there is a missing direction "All who enter" at the start of scene XVI. I don't know if I will need this or not so best to have it added. Otherwise perfect.

All of the beginning-of-scene instructions are presented very confusingly - they say who enters new, and then I think list who was already there (but only sometimes). Seems like it should be the other way around - the people there and then the newcomers. And sometimes they say "The Same" at the end of the instructions - but "The Same" what? Same people? Same scenery? Anyway, confusing. I am toying with the idea that I might swap the order of instructions to make it less confusing - sorta like the way we often move "aside" to the beginning of a line when it is printed at the end (that that is not necessary in this play). Don't know yet....

Thanks, Todd

argh, I was debating with this line and decided to cut it out again. Should have left it in, sorry. Will reupload soon.

yes I also found that annoying, and didn't really know how to emphasise it properly :lol: swapping them around may help. If you need any re-dos, just tell me :)

and Moscon is again PL ok. Haha the scene with Livia will be very funny I predict. Moscon is a bit of a blunderer here. :lol:

Thanks, Alan :)

I assume there are two servants so they can play off each other. Like Gawge and Buzzard in “In Chancery”

Thanks, Todd

:lol: the performance in the final act is the best yet. :thumbs: Moscon's slight thickness shines through in every line here. But sometimes he has moments of lucidity and can be quite snappy. Intersting character.

all the lines in, I only have one small comment:

> at 1:25: "I hope he is not thy syncope" – this may be optional, as we usually don't correct pronunciations, but as far as I know this word is pronounced "syn-co-pee", and maybe in order to make the meaning more obvious you might consider redoing this line.

thank you, great job !
