Taking note of Sonia's comment about her final line to James I have tried to make his final line a bit less unfriendly.
awww, great, Alan :9: we will give this play a bit of an extra twist. Let's give the audience the hint of a happy end for those two. In movies, people who quarrel most at the beginning, often end up in a couple in the end :mrgreen:

Thank you, Alan! I didn't realize that James actually says so very little in those final two acts. I guess Mrs. Clifford's philosophy must be that servants are meant to be seen and not heard!

However... I've just noticed that I missed a biggie in Act II! There's an entire scene (and a good one, too!) between you and Bill in Act II, in which you accuse him of being a wicked thief and pick-pocket, take his money, and then convince poor Thomas that Bill was trying to murder him!

Obviously I did not check the text thoroughly enough either. I will add the extra lines soon, but there may be a delay as I think I may have picked up a virus (England is having a flu epidemic).

I entirely understand. I'm in the same boat (see signature line). I hope you feel better soon!

Hi Devorah!

My daughter, Jasmin Burns-Said Ahmad, would like to volunteer for the role of Jim. I'll be doing the editing, so she shouldn't need a one-minute test, but she could do it, if you like.

Thanks!
TJ

Not necessary, thank you. Does she have her own login, or will she be credited under you? I need to know who to assign the section to.

Let's just credit her under me for now. If she really loves it, she can get her own login -- She already recorded the part!

Thanks!

Mattie is in the MW ready for PL.

I didn't realize quite how much crying I'd have to do! Poor dear, must be all the strain she's under, trying to keep that wild Susan under control. :wink:

excellent characterization, Devorah :thumbs: My heart really went out to poor little Mattie :cry: especially at the very tearful final act. And for the record, Susan did not make her cry, that was her father mainly. Susan more made her angry in Act 3 :lol:

All three acts PL ok. Only one tiny note for Act 2:

> at 0:29: you were coughing in my ears :shock: can be cut out ;)

Oops. Sorry about the cough. I have still been having a teensy bit of trouble with phlegm, to be honest. :lol: If that was the only spot, I won't bother uploading a new file. I'll just be sure that the cough doesn't make it into the final act!
