Act 3 narration came out to a mere 15:15. :wink:

Thanks, Devorah. At least we can safely assume this act will remain in one piece. :P

excellent job, nothing missing as far as I can tell. :thumbs: Totally PL ok, Devorah, thanks so much. So I guess Act 2 is quite a bit longer again :lol: Good luck !

Act 2 is recorded, and I should have it ready for you this weekend sometime.

EDIT: I just realized that the length is about equal to act 1. Maybe I should throw in some part 1/part 2 phrases here as well?

Thanks, Devorah! And yes, if it's a long file then having some "Part 1/Part 2" dividers in there will be a good precaution. :thumbs:

Now that The Country Wife is done, I'll be able to devote more time to finishing this. First, of course, will be recording my lines. :P I'll try to do them in the next few weeks.

Actually, dividing act 2 would be done very easily, as there's a conspicuous break in the action already written into the script. I'll go ahead and add those in before I upload. :)

Act 2 narration is ready for PL! I put in the part 1/part 2 tags on the very end. Easy to find if you need them, easy to cut if you don't. And this time, for any spots where character lines may need to be inserted into the stage directions, I went ahead and spoke them, but didn't really leave any extra space. There's still enough space there to make it easy to work with, though.

yes that was a good idea, Devorah, it's easy to edit this way. :thumbs: Wow this was a long narration again. You really did a great job with all of these. I can already see this will become a very funny play :lol:

I found only a tiny mistake at one point:

> at 15:33: (p. 77): “Jones, looking at his watch” – you say “Jerry

the rest absolutely word perfect. Well done ! Thanks

That's funny. I remember coming across this error in editing and I'd have sworn I already fixed it. :hmm:

How about now?

yes all PL ok now. Strange...maybe you uploaded the wrong file earlier ?

Thanks for this mega narration job, Devorah. The narrator definitely has pride of place in this play.

No, I only saved one file. I probably Ctrl-Z'ed it out of existence when I was trying to fix something else. Thanks, I look forward to hearing this one put together!

Here's Mr. Jones, Act 2:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/vegetable_jones_2_128kb.mp3
I included the ALL line "too late?" at 7:23 and "[A murmur of surprise]" at 7:27.
nice touch for the murmur of surprise, TJ ;) I believe you're the only one that included this. I love the contrast of your stern, dead-pan and efficient voice in the beginning (a sort of "Man in Black", bouncer for the President :mrgreen: ) and this coupled with seeing him brushing the steps with a broom. :lol: absolutely hilarious. Highly enjoyed it all. Looking forward to the other act.

Thanks, totally PL ok. :thumbs:

ha ha ha! "Man in Black"! :lol: Thanks, Sonia. I had this picture in mind while recording Act 1 (short, but powerful):
