I put in a claim for The Cook yesterday, but I don’t see it here anymore. Is LV having some technical problems?
Anyway, I would like to be the Cook, becos I’ve a special recipe fer the Mistress.

Thank you. Don't know what the problem might have been. Blame the parlourmaid....

I’m sure it was the Parlourmaid... I can see Chris right now, stuffing it into “her” apron! :wink:

I like being useful, when I can. I'll read for the Useful Maid, if you please.

the useful maid is mainly reduced to either tears of joy or tears of shock :lol: so I am sure you will have plenty of fun with her. (yes these servants nowadays are quite taxing on the nerves) Thanks, Devorah !!!

Jeannot with missing line at 0:14. Hope I managed to get the accent close to the original.

Arjuna, for Chitra. I wasn't sure how I should pronounce Arjuna for the voice credit - I don't speak my own name during the play - so I put in two versions. I also gave a short credit as well as a longer version with the full character description.

Thanks, Todd

The useless, oops, I mean Useful Maid:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/playgoers_usefulmaid_pinero.mp3
This is known in some circles as "The Ugly Cry."
ok Devorah, I bow to you. This was surely one of the hardest roles I ever encountered. How could you be moping and crying so much ? I would probably have been totally out of it if I had to play this. And you played it so believably :thumbs: We definitely need NO stage directions for you saying "weeping" or some such.

I know this sounds awful now, but I could not stop laughing each time you starting up crying again. Simply to listen to the sheer mass of cries during 4 minutes in a row was tickling my laughing nerves. :lol: This is simply wonderful. And I really could hear you stuffing your handkerchief in your mouth :mrgreen: I was fully expecting you to blow your nose loudly at any moment (you spared me that at least)

Excellently PL ok. I wish I had heard this before my performance. I hope I sound exasperated enough at the appropriate points LOL

Thank you so much for this, Devorah !

The hardest part was keeping in character when my cats started fighting! :lol: In order not to break my momentum, I had to tell myself, "Waa-haaa, the cats are fighting agai-hai-hai-haaaiin!"
