Act 4.

Fun to read through this and imagine them pulling one over on Fondlewife.
:lol: yes I adored this scene too. And you have played your part in this brilliantly, so very hypocritically tongue-in-cheek and full of double-entendre, I can't wait to hear this assembled (Todd: get to it ! :mrgreen: )

Thank you so much, this is also PL ok. We're rapidly approaching the end here. :9:

BTW Todd, I think I think I also recited (or even sang) the Aurora poem in the beginning of Scene 7. Now on a better look, it was indeed Bellmour who is supposed to say these lines, so regretfully, I resign the part. You probably already inserted it, so I'll mention it that it needs to be replaced.

:mrgreen: I would have said it nicer, but yes that's the gist of it (sorry, today I'm in Lady Plyant-mode)

and PL ok. I finally get to the bottom of all the intrigues that are being plotted here :lol: Since my character was only in one act, I only browsed through the others before and now it's cool to hear it all assemble and actually make sense.

Thanks

excellent ending to the whole excellent performance, Jason. Ohhh Bellmour is quite a mischievous guy here in this act. :evil: Well, they are all deserving of each other, nobody is really "nice" in this play :lol:

PL ok, and that means Todd can finish it all up. :9: I guess I will be listening to the final two acts tomorrow...

Thank you all for your wonderful contributions !

a wonderful Act 4, I was looking forward to the cuckolding scene and it didn't disappoint. :lol: Everybody was indeed playing wonderfully in character.

Only one small snippet to put in another place:

> at 36:10: "Laetitia, aside" – this fits better at 36:16 (and you can cut "Laetitia"), right before "Pray Heaven it be a prayer-book." because the first sentence she speaks aloud to Fondlewife

something else: Todd, your Heartwell does not appear in Act 4, still you are in the MW for that act...

The rest is perfect...now looking forward to the big finale.

and the final act 5 is absolutely PL ok and a great finale. :9: The bachelor remains a bachelor...Todd escaped abuse this time :mrgreen: most of the others got what they deserved :lol:

Excellent stitching together, and brilliantly played by all ! Thanks ! And see you in the next one.
