wow an excellent performance Mark :clap: I really enjoyed listening to the whole character. Even though he is in trouble and destitute in a way, he nevertheless doesn't drift into pathos too much, but is asserting himself quite often (or trying to at least) :mrgreen:

It will be a wonderful addition to this cast. :thumbs:

But you are not finished yet...I found a few missed lines and some parts to correct:

Act 1:

> for the voice credit, could you please say it this way: "Harold Boycott, read by Mark Nelson". This is the standard way we all say it in the cast list, and yours would stick out strangely if you are the only one reading it so completely differently.

> at about 8:42: (p. 13) two missed lines: "You do – as a surprise." and "Ah, Dolly, how are you ?"

> at about 8:55: (p. 14) missed line: "You are looking very well, Dolly, dear."

> at 17:21: you can cut out "end of act 1" as this is done by the narrator

Act 2:

> at about 0:53: (p. 25) missed line: "Why, your father is keeping you company."

> at 5:51: also here "the end of act 2" can be cut

thanks for the fast turn-around ! We are really approaching the end here now :9:

I thought I'd be clever and use the internal search feature so that all my lines would be highlighted, but somehow some weren't.

yes in archive this search function is often rather unreliable.

Everything in now, thank you. You only forgot to give us the standard voice credit at the beginning, did you miss my note about that ?

You can upload a separate file for this line, then you don't have to fiddle with the big acts anymore, those two are then PL ok. I'll make a note for Todd in the MW.

Todd: apart from the one voice credit, all is ready for final assembling. 8-)

Oh no, I did it. Just forgot to actually past it into the file, and I guess that's not quite good enough.

and I just had a most agreeable full hour of listening pleasure with Act 1 (which is PL ok) :9: Indeed, we all sound great together, everybody is immersed in their roles, and very believably acting out. :thumbs: What a great cast (and a great editor).

Thank you all ! Looking forward to Act 2. But logging off for tonight...

and another wonderful hour-long listen :9: Loved the whole performance, but especially the denouement at the end, where we are all somehow more serious with each other. It has a lot of thoughtful insights to be a straight-out comedy, I think.

Excellent. I have only a very tiny note to make here:

> at 15:08: "from my affections" – here is a loud click that can easily be cut out, just to make it all perfect :)

thanks
