Todd, for the stage directions, do you want any of the material at the start included in Act 1 (letter, preface, prologue)?
Foon - Please correct my pronunciation!

Readers needed:
Arabian Nights (Vol. 10)

Yes please - the letter to the Duke, the Preface, and the Prologue all before the Dramatis Personae.

Thanks, Todd

I'm think I might like to be the Constable for this one.
Maybe I could take a servant part, too.

More stage directions:
wonderful job, Foon. :clap: You made my job easy by being very meticulously, and the text wasn't easy to plod through. I only found two small missing parts, both "asides" which need the character name. On the whole you managed quite well to fish out those that needed it ;)

Act 2 is already PL ok. Although the volume is a bit low, but I will make a mention of that in the MW, nothing to change here.

Notes for Act 1:

> at 10:47: "Young Bookwit, pressingly" – this should come at the beginning of the speech, so we need to include the name

> Question for Todd: did you want the very short intro about the history of the play included ? Foon has read it now, but I think you didn't mention that. Well, now you can choose. It is interesting, one could well leave it in

Notes for Act 3:

> the volume is also a bit low here

> at 2:04: "Penelope, aside" - also here, name needs to be included. I hope I pointed out the correct "aside" since there are about a dozen following each other at that point :lol:

thanks ! :)

> Note to Todd:
I found another character named "Chair" in Act 3. I think he is a sort of servant. As "Chair" he only has one single line, but a few lines later Young Bookwit orders his "orchestra" to sing to his directions, and there is a professional singer Mr Leveridge who sings the song. Maybe the Chairman could be speaking these lines as well, since he should belong to the orchestra, if I understood that correctly. That way we don't need a separate Mr Leveridge. edit: I noticed this Mr Leveridge also sings a song right at the end in Act 5. That way, the role of Chair could be fairly big. :)

Yes to leaving the short history in.

Drat, another character I missed? Or is it two - Chair (in 3) and Leveridge (in 3 and 5)? Since I am allowing people to have multiple small roles, I'll put them both into the MW.

Thanks, Todd

well actually Mr Leveridge was a real singer back in the day, it's explained in a footnote. It's not his name in the play. That's why I thought he could also take this one line for the Chair, who is supposed to be part of the musician's troupe. But it's fine as it is. We also used Pate the singer in the last play, so this is the same I'd say.
