Happy new year, all!

A quick post to let you know that the role of Subtle has been re-opened. It would be great if you wanted to read Subtle or Ingen, the only remaining roles, so we can get this play in the bag.

Well, I would be glad to take one of these, probably Imgen. I have the Count in Act 5, but they don't interact directly, and I think the voice for either of these would be different, but whatever you think -- just wanting to help in getting this completed.

Thanks, Larry! As you say, they are different voices, and you already used a rather gruff voice for the count: I am sure you could read Ingen so he sounds different. If you confirm, I’ll mark this as yours in the MW.

Sounds good to me.
I'll put this on my reading schedule!

Hi Rob

Contrary to what I said the other day I find I have got time to do this. So, if you will accept me back on the project, here are the first three acts of Subtle. I will try to do the remaining ones next weekend. The act 1 file is the one you have already PLed.

I will read Sir Love-All if still available. Some extra-dry reading here but I want to help finish it.

Thanks a lot! Yes, Love-all is very much the straight man in the double act with Subtle, but I am sure you will be able to inject the part with a good deal of character.

Thanks, Major!

Acts 2 and 5 are PL OK. There are just a few fixes required in the other acts.

Act 1
1.00 "if I should die, I would bequeath him in my will to thee." You say "in ALL my will to thee", which changes the meaning a bit.
2.10 "shall see And best conceal my folly." I hear "seek" instead of "see".

Act 3
0.50 "let your angels fly About the room" You miss out 'fly'. Sorry, I probably threw you off with my note saying that angels are meant to mean a type of coin in this sentence.
