Mr. Stewart Act One
this is brilliant, James :clap: is this the first time you're doing a dramatic reading ? You're a natural in that case. You seemed to get seamlessly into character right from the start, haha, excellent idea to make him "wake up" at the beginning. :mrgreen: That's what makes these plays so lively. I love the character you created, lively, a bit ironic with his colleagues, but dutiful towards Johnson. :thumbs:

Everything is perfect and can be marked PL ok.

Well there is actually a small optional note:

> at 0:47: (p. 8): “Millar’s messenger carried the last sheet away an hour since.” – you said only “a messenger”, I would consider this trivial enough to let it slip, unless you want to correct it. Millar is not a person in the play, surely only the publisher of the dictionary, so the name is not adding too much to the comprehension. I let you decide if you want to reupload to be word-perfect. But for me it's ok.

Congrats to your first official LV section :birthday: and I sincerely hope this is not the last time I'll hear you in one of our dramas...you can even claim another role in here, if the character is in another act. (what are you waiting for, there's still a few roles left in many other plays) :mrgreen:

Thank you so very much for the nice review of my presentation of Mr. Stewart. I am an actor. I have been in several professional plays. I am 70 years old now and have been dealing with some health issues so I have not been acting for about the last 10 years. I wanted to contribute to librivox, but I never seemed to get around to. After being out of the theater for so long, it was nice to make my return with librivox. I certainly will consider performing more parts. Thanks again for the lovely note.

With great appreciation,

James Thomas

wow ok that explains it 8-) we're fortunate to have secured another great talent for our drama section then. :9:

that's good news :D Although it probably will not be the same feeling than actually being on stage in front of an audience, I think it can come quite close to it. And I am always surprised when I hear the final assembled piece. Most of the time we really all sound so tuned to each other that it looks as if we really rehearsed in the same room instead of each recording our parts alone in the different parts of this world. It's amazing.

I'm glad you enjoyed the experience, and I'll be seeing you around. Maybe we'll offer a play that you have done in your career already ;)

I could read section 11 - Mrs. Delaney if you'd like.
Cheers,
