but this way the reader gets to suffer the same sense of frustration as the master and Mistress by listening to "Master, to the Parlourmaid" "Parlourmaid, to the Master" "Mistress, to the Cook" "Cook to the Mistress" etc etc over and over again....
Reminds me of one play where I read the stage directions, where one character always had some adverb assigned to her speech:
Miss Smith (softly): ...
Miss Smith (angrily): ...
Miss Smith (annoyed): ...
Miss Smith (solemnly): ...
Miss Smith (happily):...

The other characters not so much, but her, nearly every time. (I wonder if the playwright knew who would be cast, and thought she needed help...)
Truth,

Ha! The playwright probably cast his trophy girlfriend, with no acting experience... 😄😄😄

Or he was just thinking about his cocker spaniel...

Here is Mizzle!

I had lots of fun with this role. I think Mizzle sees himself as the only sane person around... And personally, I think he's right!

Oh, I forgot to mention, but there was one line in there (Mizzle) that I gave you two versions of. I couldn't decide which one I liked, so I just decided to let you decide! :wink:
