I can read for the Servant? It's just one line, I think.

Bevil Junior: ready for PL
sorry for getting so late to this, but my weekend was quite busy.

Now I listened to the whole performance and you did a great job, Adrian. Bevill is so soft-spoken, unless really provoked by the duel, and even there, he quickly forgives again. A nice characterization, he's the right buddy-type. :thumbs:

Nothing missing as far as I can see. I will mark Acts 1, 2 and 5 already PL ok.

For Act 4 I have a small suggestion for improvement, but it's optional:

> at 0:32: "The fellow's caution, I find, has given him this jealousy." – judging from context, I think this part is spoken as aside (mentioned after the sentence). Maybe you should make a longer break after "Very well" (to insert the stage direction) and speak it a bit less exuberantly ;) this sounds more like he is screaming it out loud.

thank you for the excellent performance.

you may ! thank you for participating. I see you have done a few DRs already, so you know about the "special" rules for recording theatre, which are similar to DR.

Have fun !

Thank you for your encouragement, Sonia.
I had misunderstood the [aside] related to the previous text, not the following. It makes more sense the correct way round!
Here's the corrected version:

yes unfortunately in these old texts, the aside is often after the sentence it refers to, which from a modern perspective is not so intuitive. :? We have to stay vigilant :lol:

Thank you for the correction, I see you also re-recorded the following sentence. :thumbs: Very PL ok now.

thank you, Arthur. I love the "younger, innocent" voice you are giving the boy. 8-) well done.

However, the role is bigger than you thought ;)

> at about 0:06: there are 6 quotes in Scene II that you have missed. The foot-boy is already opening the door for the gentlemen in this scene. Please include the following lines:

"Alack, sir! I am but a country boy—I dant know whether she is or noa; but an you'll stay a bit, I'll goa and ask the gentlewoman that's with her."
"Nay, nay, I'm not such a country lad neither, master, to think she's at home because I see her. I have been in town but a month, and I lost one place already for believing my own eyes."
"Ah, master! things that are lies in the country are not lies at London. I begin to know my business a little better than so—But an you please to walk in, I'll call a gentlewoman to you that can tell you for certain—she can make bold to ask my lady herself."
"Nay, nay! that's neither here nor there: what's matter whether she is within or no, if she has not a mind to see anybody?"
"Will you please to walk in; I'll see what I can do for you."
"Such a house! Sir, you han't seen it yet. Pray walk in."

thanks

Sonia
