yes and both are perfectly PL ok. Xiphares pleads his cause right well here in the 3rd act. :thumbs:

thank you

Here are the four acts that the tragic and perhaps slightly unhinged King Mithridates appears in:
:lol: "slightly unhinged" is a good character-description for Mithridates, especially in Act 4 (which is slightly over 92 dB, but I'll make a note for Todd...no need to reupload). And he is nastily cunning to trick Monima into admitting her love :evil: Excellently portrayed again, Greg, and this was a huge role. You'll be happy to hear it's PL ok in its entirety. You're making my job easy here :9:

thank you

Sonia

Wow! All PL OK on the first go! I find long speeches are much easier than short dialogue because I can just take off, hit my stride and get it done!

I am pleased that was helpful for you too!

This was a fun play to read. This would have been exciting to do on stage when I was younger. I don't feel that way about too many plays beyond Shakespeare.

Anyway, thank YOU as always for your excellent work, and for playing the Queen!

Have a great day!

Greg

Here are all four of Phoedima's acts. Please let me know if I need to make corrections.
aww, thank you, Wendy, Phoedima is wonderfully portrayed. I was never sure whether she genuine wanted the best for Monima or whether she secretly was working a bit for Mithridates as well :hmm: there is ambiguity in her reactions.

All 4 acts perfectly acted and nothing missing. The only thing we need is a complete voice credit, so I'll only mark acts 2, 4 and 5 PL ok for now.

please reupload Act 1:

> for the voice credit, could you please read the entire description, as pointed out in the MW: "Phoedima, Friend of Monima, read by..." that way we don't need to insert the narrator's voice in there

Todd: this means all the characters for Act 2 are in !

thank you

Sonia

and all perfectly PL ok in these two acts as well. :thumbs: He's got a bit of a short part in the end but at least you got the final word. :mrgreen: Well done, thanks.

Now only waiting for baddie Pharnaces 8-) But Acts 2, 4 and 5 are ready for the final touches. :9:
