yes he really did not have that much to say.

But I must protest a bit: you made me look like crazy in the first Act for Plutarchus...until I checked the MW and saw he only shows up in Act 3, 4 and 5 :shock: you need to be careful how to name your file names ;) the numbers 1, 2, 3 made me look in the wrong acts.

But it's ok, no need to change them now, I'll make a note in the MW, they will be deleted later on anyway.

Acts 3 & 5 are already PL ok . You somehow make him sound sweet, like a really young fellow.

For Act 4: (so that would be your file name numbered "2")

> right at the beginning, can you insert one missing line, please ? (p. 327 middle) “His hand is to the draught.”

Since you have to re-upload anyway, you could also correctly name that one "4". ;)

thanks

Sorry for wrongly naming all the files. :oops:

Here is little act 4 for spot PL:

ok this was a quickie, so I already PLed it. Super done Owen :thumbs: is this one of the Irish-American imports to England ? :wink: I love the accent and the raspy voice in your voice credit :lol: I wish the Gaolers had a bigger scene, it could have been so much fun.

PL ok

Thanks, and I hope to hear you in loads of plays still

Might I be considered for the role of Serjant, Act 5?
It's a massive bit of dialog, but I would like to give it a go.

:lol: I really had to check the entire 5th act, because I couldn't believe, the Sergeant only had one line ! But it seems you're right. Well, at least I can say, you arrest people with the needed sternness. :thumbs:

It's PL ok

(I think I need to find you a bigger role...)

Yes, thanks. I can't post the claim into the MW until later today but Trains is yours.

Here is Fabian Fitzdottrel, Act 1: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/devilisanass_fabian_1.mp3

Boy, these acts sure are long. And my character likes to talk a lot. :shock:

:shock: indeed you have huge monologues :lol: But you portray him to perfection. He is so boisterous and enthusiastic, but still somehow manages to be duped by others. :mrgreen: I think the scene with Pug at the beginning will turn out quite good.

Well done and not one single error found in all this long act :thumbs:

Fitzdottrel Act 1 PL ok. Now you probably need a rest before Act 2
