Here he is:

Faithfull, albeat self-interested. A bit of a wimp, and slightly off the planet.

Thank you.

Todd
I just noticed your sig line. Perhaps "weaker" would have grabbed the attention less firmly.

:lol: I guess Todd's intention on the contrary was to get more attention to the project ;)

yes these servants, just like Molière's servants, are always veering between witty and cowardly. You played it excellently, Adrian :thumbs: Really really loved the performance. It was a big role, and considering the text was very difficult to browse through, it's a feat you didn't miss many lines.

In fact: Acts 3 and 4 are straight PL ok.

You managed to miss the very first line of your role in Act 2 though :mrgreen:

Lysiteles Act II, with a duration of 10:34: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/trinummus_lysiteles_2_128kb.mp3

The first half is him complaining about how love is a horrible evil, and then the second half is him asking his dad to get him a wife, preferably in a way that involves him doing no work. Seems legit.

Also, please let me know if I have messed up any names, O great speaker of all languages ever devised. Especially Lysiteles/Philto, since those ones only came up in the intro, so they'll be easy to fix.

:lol: he is a little rascal, isn't he ? The way he pushes his father into asking Lesbonicus for his sister in marriage is craftily laid out. I loved the performance and am already looking forward to the next acts...curious how it will end with Lysiteles. This act is PL ok.

As for the names...they sound fine to me :) Just stay consistent throughout the performance with these pronunciations.

Thanks !
