Certainly would like the title. I think the summaries and prologues are not great - I will have to look later today.
with "title" I mean 4 lines explaining the title.

I actually thought the prologues were quite funny. But up to you

In the narration for Act 1, let's skip "The Subject", "The Title of the Play", and "The Summary of C ...". But please do record the First and Second prologues - skipping the footnotes.

Thanks, Todd

oh, you even cut out the superfluous names, thank you so much. This will make Todd's editing job a lot easier.

And the prologues sound so funny, you really did them quite tongue-in-cheek :thumbs: excellently done, a great start in the play (though the play isn't such a funny topic, it's a worthy relief to have a bit of comedy at the beginning).

All of Narrator PL ok. Great job, Leanne, and thanks for the fast corrections.

Todd: that means Act 2 is ready to be assembled ! 8-)

Parmeno for PL:
excellent performance, Eva :clap: Parmeno is the endearing faithful servant all throughout, sometimes bumbling, not always content with the job, but still he plods along. And I especially love the gossipping scene in act 1 8-)

Nice touch that he has to have the final word in the play. Well done.

I'll mark Acts 1 and 5 PL ok already.

Two small notes for Act 3 though:

> for the voice credit could you please say the whole description: Parmeno, servant of Sostrata (let's include it here so you don't have to reupload Act 1)

> at about 3:40: missing line: "Why, don’t they know the way themselves to come to our house?"

thanks

I see that 2 and 5 are ready for PL and I just had a listen. They are quite short acts, compared to others we have (Pinero comes to mind :lol: )

Both are excellently acted out by all parties involved and assembled, I don't have any notes for improvement. :thumbs:

PL ok.

a fabulous opening for the play, nicely assembled and perfectly acted out by all involved. :clap:

I only would have one suggestion for cutting:

> at 1:00: voice credit for Myrrhina (this only as reminder, so we don't forget)

> at 11:11: “Philotis, vehemently exclaiming” – can be cut, Devorah is vehement enough here. :lol: Also this gives the dialogue more impetus here if it’s not interrupted

otherwise, perfect

I agree and have made the cut. (No upload yet until last voice credit added.)

Thanks, Todd

I think plays like this were usually played straight through without any breaks. The division into acts was only a formality and did not involve scene changes or interruptions. So acts could be very short.
