Chuck:

May I claim the Peasant in Act I (Section 25)
the Lay Brother in Act 2 (Section 26)
the first Gentleman in Act 3 (Section 33)

It will likely take me a little longer than my usual pacing to finish these...but I should still get them in in the 60 day window.

Many thanks

Philip
That would be great, Philip! Thank you so much. :-)

And please... no rush. We've obviously got plenty of roles to fill before we start talking about deadlines and such.

let me make a start here...here is Leonora Act 2, a woman with a star-crossed lover's history. Very tragic. I made her very dignified and composed at the beginning, but only to show how much she is affected be the fate of Osterloo later on, when she takes charge to help.

Try as I might, I could not find any lines for her in Act 1. Are you sure she is present in that act ? :hmm: If so, can you tell me what scene you found her in ?

and here I finished Leonora, for your scrutiny, Chuck. Quite a tragic and tearful ending. :(

Yes, definitely not a happy outcome for anyone in this play. I might have to follow this up with another comedy. :-(

Thanks again, Sonia. I'm at the grocery store right now, but will PL these when I get a chance.

Thanks TJ! Happy to have you aboard! :-)

I'll probably wind up taking either Jerome or the stage directions... whichever goes first...

Thanks Chuck! Both Jerome and the stage directions will be hefty endeavors! That's why I like Paul, he just seems to echo Jerome every once and a while... :lol:

thank you, Philip, for these three :) it was a bit of a hassle searching for the lines LOL but I think I found them all. Everything correct and PL ok. Nicely read. I especially like the very dead-pan peasant, juts going about his duty, whatever it may be.

4 excellent performances, Leanne :clap: I especially love the sexton with his almost lustily morbid excitement over his job in the crypt LOL Also the Ambassador is well portrayed in his fierce authority. :thumbs:

The Woman and the Peasant are PL ok immediately.

one PL note for the Sexton:

> at 0:53: (p. 126) "who are mighty apt to take a cholic or shortness of breath" - I think you say "chalice" instead of "cholic" which doesn'treally make sense here in context

and a minor point for the Ambassador:

> at 0:22: (p. 167) before "I take under my protection", you leave no pause to insert the stage directions, but I think in this case we could also well insert them right before this sentence, so I don't think this needs changing, unless Chuck prefers to put it in the middle :hmm:

> at 2:18: (p. 171) "till a worthier man (pointing to Benedict) shall possess this power which you have so greatly abused" - here I think we need to leave a pause though for the stage directions

The Sexton and the 3rd Peasant are a bit below our required volume, but I can make a note for Chuck to adjust later.

thanks

Sonia
