I had to laugh at myself when I looked at the ages. At first, I was going to say that I'd read Carmen because she's closest to my age. Then I realized I'm actually right in between her and Madame Pepita. Then I realized, no, I'm actually closer to Madame Pepita! :lol: :roll:

(In my defense, I just had a birthday.)
I am just over the age of all the female parts and here I am reading the 17 year old :lol:

Thank you. Hopefully I can attract a DPL. Otherwise you'll have to wait for PL a few days 'til I finish a mountain of editing!

Thanks, Todd

No problem. I am sure the project will take a while like most dramas so no rush :D
Thanks for launching so many new plays :thumbs:

Todd, I decided to jump in after all :) Seeing that everybody is out of their age group here, this looks like fun :lol: So I'm giving myself a rejuvenation as well and play 16-year-old Cristina. :mrgreen:

...I just noticed, I will be the youngest then...hopefully I can pull that. Even though...I am already used to snotty, feisty lady's maids and they were probably in the same league than little Cristina here. :lol:

While I'm at it, I can also DPL.

ok here we go, Alan. A wonderfully affable character you have created here. I don't know the play yet, so I hope this guy is really a good person and doesn't have a sinister secret agenda later on :lol: There could be a surprise twist in act 2.... I let myself be surprised.

In any case, a brilliant first act :thumbs: all PL ok. Thank you, looking forward to the next part.

The Sewing Girl role please.

You know it makes sense, Todd. :lol:

Madame Pepita needs a sewing girl tough enough to tell the menfolk to turn about while she straightens her silk stocking seams.

"Okay, face the wall, boys. This is a hold-up."

Cheers,
Chris

Maybe if the angel smile didn't make Todd's characters feel as if they were being contemplated as an unusual though interesting hors d'oeuvre? :wink:

Ye shall reap what ye sow. Or sew what ye ripped. Either way.

I wasn't sure whether I needed a stiff vodka to deal with this, but turns out I can take more than I thought.

So after the parlour maid it's the sewing girl...where will it all end ? (no, don't answer this !)

Anyway, it was interesting to hear your falsetto voice. :mrgreen: I think the sewing girl is definitely related to the parlourmaid...maybe a younger cousin ? An illegitimate daughter ? :hmm:

Absolutely PL ok and thanks for playing "out of the box". Who wants to be typecast anyway ? :lol:
