The first two acts of Horner are ready for PL!
you're an excellent rogue, Tomas :lol: I bet you enjoyed this part very much :mrgreen: in any case, it sounds brilliant on its own and probably even better assembled. Great start, looking forward to the rest.

Both acts PL ok.

:lol: yes I can totally understand. Hearing you so breathless after the China-incident, you sound totally believably spent of exhaustion :mrgreen: And I especially like your many smacking kisses, sounds like you're really abusing of the situation ;)

Wow, this was a big role, but you performed it all brilliantly in character. :thumbs: Nothing missing I think. Totally PL ok.

Great job. Now for a well-deserved rest.

Just a small head's up: the deadline for the Narrator is coming up, and I haven't heard anything from Phiona, so if nothing comes in by next week I'll be orphaning that part. Anyone interested in doing stage directions can keep an eye on this space.

Just a quick heads up: I have recorded Margery in all her glory for 35 minutes or so :wink:
I hope I will be done editing over the weekend, but I am very busy unfortunately...

Just so that you know that she'll be around soon. ish.
Cheers,
Ava.

That's not a problem. Thank you, Ava. :)

I'm also orphaning the stage directions, as promised. So those are up for grabs if anyone wants them...

Thank you, Campbell! I'll put that in the MW for Sonia tomorrow.

P.S. I forgot to say something earlier, but I wanted to ask if you could pronounce Wycherley like this: https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definition/english/william-wycherley I normally wouldn't bother if the author were obscure and there was no agreed-upon consensus anywhere, but this does seem to be the "official" pronunciation, so I'd rather follow it.

great job, Campbell, I love the parts where you are "acting it out" as well, most notably the excellent "whispers" :thumbs: And wow there were a lot of asides in this one :lol: I hope I managed to capture them all....

you did miss a few lines though, I noted them down here:

> at about 1:47: please also add: "SCENE—LONDON." at the end of the dramatis personae.
BTW it's easier to read the list off from the book instead of the MW, that way you're sure to not miss any and it's helpful for the editor who has them all in the correct order in the end ;) but nothing to change this time, I think you didn't miss any, and anyway, most of the time we don't need the narrator for these lines, it's only when one of the readers drops off without handing their credit it. So it's always good to have the narrator read them all in one go. :thumbs:

> at about 2:07: please insert: "Enter Sir JASPER FIDGET, Lady FIDGET, and Mrs. DAINTY FIDGET."

> at about 3:14: missed line: "Enter PINCHWIFE."

> at about 3:47: one more missing: "Harcourt aside"

maybe best start inserting from the end of the file, that way your time stamps won't change ;)

Thanks

Sonia

I call that a success - I'm proud of the fact that I didn't misread any asides. Next time we'll see if I can get all my lines AND all the asides correct (ambitious I know :D)

Interesting. In the past I've been told to read from the MW because it might have different character descriptions, and also includes some roles that are grouped together in the script (servants, etc.). Next time I'll try that way though :D.

I inserted those lines!

hmm yes I see what you mean, for the grouping of servants I would also check what the MW has, but for all the rest, the book is actually better because it has all the character descriptions as well. Usually we don't add anything in the MW that is not also present in the book. So apart from groupings, the book is the best source to read from. Especially because it also makes it that bit easier for the already hard working editor, if he gets them all in the correct order.
thanks. It can be marked PL ok now, although there is a tiny optional detail to note:

> at 2:17: "and Mrs Dainty Fidget" - you forgot "Fidget" but I think that is optional as we know who Mrs Dainty is.... ;) so unless Tomas wants this in, it's fine with me

Sonia
