I think for my own personal safety I need to disown most of the sentiments expressed by this character. I did not really choose this part, Chris said he thought it would suit me :hmm:
ah don't worry, Alan, I actually didn't find Gregory too horrible. Yes, he has an antipathy (or should I say trauma ?) against widows :lol: but this comes from his troubled history, seeing so many premiers fail because of them. He is a sort of motherhen for them and cares a lot, that explains his reaction. And when you get to Act 3 you'll see, Gregory and Widow Pretty get along well and become partners in crime ;) he is fully redeemed by the end of the play.

You did play the character excellently. A sort of disillusioned man throughout, nicely conveyed. Now looking forward to his subtle change of mind in act 3. :9:

PL ok. Perfect job. Thank you

Sonia

Grumpy Old Misogynist - act 3
:lol: I actually found him quite endearing somehow (in a grumpy sort of way). Think Walter Matthau...

Totally PL ok in any case, and for what it's worth, I totally liked the performance and I think our dialogue will sound cool together.

Todd: that means, Act 3 is ready to finish up 8-) This time I will be listening to the play in reverse order. :lol:

Thanks, Alan

I totally agree. We all sound like we really rehearsed and practiced in the same room. :clap: A wonderful ending, and I can't wait to listen to the rest of the play. Todd, excellent assembling, I agree with all the cuttings. This is PL ok, straight-away.

Patrick O'Reilly, A Constituent, Act 1:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/mrsprettyandthepremier_patrickoreilly_1_128kb.mp3
Oi'd've turned this in earlier, but oi fell asleep. Oi couldn't kape awake after supper, could I? :lol:
:mrgreen: O'Reilly is hilarious, brilliant, TJ ! I don't predict a very big career for him even with the Premier's support. Let's say, his job motivation is wanting a bit. :lol: I loved the accent and your "old man" voice.

Totally PL ok. Now you can go back to sleep. ;)

Thanks for making this small scene very memorable. I wouldn't have minded if he had shown up again in Act 3, asking for another job. :lol:

Thanks, Sonia! Ha ha ha! That would have been funny if I came back! Can you believe it? They actually wanted me to keep awake for the job! Don't workers' rights mean anything to these people?!!!
