In Act III, Scene VII, there is a line following Lucy's last line of the scene that just doesn't seem to be hers. It is, "That woman sure enjoys a blessed night, Whom love and vengeance both at once delight." This seems to be spoken about Lucy. Not sure how to proceed. Please advise.
no this is definitely a Lucy-quote. Sometimes in these old plays the Acts end on a sort of proverb-like statement which usually rhymes. Lucy already in the previous sentence says that Sylvia can be content because she will have her vengeance for her anger. (Come, madam, you’re like to have a happy time on’t; both your love and anger satisfied!)
So it is quite fitting that she will say the same thing in rhyme at the end.

Thank you.

(Better to use same file name as before - that way the links in the MW are still valid since the old file gets renamed and archived when new file comes along from the uploader.)

Thanks, Todd

thank you, both are now PL ok :) the first file could use a bit of noise-cleaning, but since there are no other errors, I'll make a note for Todd to run it before he edits the file in.

Todd: a quick question - will you want the narrator to read the whole of the introduction? It's interesting, but quite long, and I'm hesitating about the time required.
No, do not read the introduction.

Please read:
TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE CHARLES, LORD CLIFFORD OF LANESBOROUGH, ETC.
TO MR. CONGREVE (3 sections)
PROLOGUE INTENDED....
PROLOGUE

Thanks, Todd
OK, here are the stage directions for act 1 (very short) plus the introductory material (very long). I do hope the first performance was good enough to stand up to the totally OTT introductory build-up. :lol:

Throughout the play, I've omitted the odd text that appears in square brackets at the start of many scenes: "[To him]" etc
