Ooh! What a crotchety old maid. I love the way she says "never mind - I could not speak of it" and then proceeds to do so at great length. I was hoping that you'd unbend and get redemption at the end, but instead you just hopped on the train back to London. Poor soul....

Great performance. PL OK.

Thanks, Todd

I'll take Josephine, please, if she has not been spoken for. :D

Here's Frances, Act 1:

Frances reminds me of Jo March in Little Women -- Jo was the first role I ever played in a Radio Play back when I was a teenager. Ahhh, fond memories. :D

Great. I can see the pouting and the stamped feet quite clearly! PL OK.

Very nicely done; she sure does talk a lot throughout this act! Only three comments:

At 1:10 in your file, you left out the phrase "Not even one's neighbours." from the top of page 41

At 8:14, you say "nightmares", text says "nightingales" at top of page 51.

At 12:46, the "15s 5d.!" should be pronounced "15 shillings and 5 pence" - the "!" is just a regular exclamation point.

Thanks, Todd
Changes made perfectly. I wish I could get my voice to match original and corrections so well. (You did insert corrections, right? You didn't re-record everything??)

PL OK.

Thanks, Todd

(Act 3 fixes ok'd above)

Act 4 PL OK as well. There is a repeat that I will just cut out when editing.

Such drama in the story!

Thanks, Todd
