Poor Wellbred seems to be languishing alone in the corner. May I claim the role to help move things along?

Knowell recorded; must edit. I confess that sometimes I find it hard to figure out exactly what Jonson's characters are really saying or implying.... No sure I will run more of his plays after this.

Thanks, Todd

so true, the full meaning eluldes me even though I understand every word. But I think you did a great job here. I noticed that I understand it often better when I hear it acted out, since then I get some expressive intonation to help along with the meaning. :thumbs:

8-) I had to think twice before getting this joke. But you're right !

Knowell is the typical overly strict old gentleman, and you played him to perfection. I love the calmness you display throughout the scenes, even though one can hear that the old man is starting to be annoyed sometimes LOL But he is not a bad guy all in all.

All acts PL ok, apart from one PL note in Act 1:

> at 6:51: “Leave thy vigilant father alone” – you say “valiant”. It might not matter much, but I think, Wellbred is more blaming the old Knowell for being too vigilant over his son’s comings and goings, and therefore “valiant” doesn’t really sound right here, as it conveys a different and much more positive aspect of character. I would suggest correcting this word

The rest perfect :thumbs: thanks !

Love the way you do your PLs with the character analysis !

I will fix "Valiant".

if I'm not mistaken, apart from the cast list, Act 1 is fully cast to be finalized. We could already finish that one and I only Spot PL the cast list later on when we have them all.

yay, and a great start it is. Somehow the scene with Knowell at the beginning extremely reminds me of some Molière characters and incidents. While the scene with Bobadill is much more along the British traditions.

All prefectly assembled. I only have one note for you in the cast list, (apart from the two missing credits, which I only write down to find them back faster later on). I think you could edit it at the end when you have the two missing credits, no need to reupload immediately.

> at 0:43: missing credit for Wellbred

> at 1:15: missing credit for Thomas Cash

> at 1:54: “servant read by” can be cut out at the end, as you already included Foon’s voice credit at the right spot (at 1:35)

Great job so far :thumbs: looking forward to the rest.

Sonia
