Is there a reason why you left out Act 4 ? :hmm:
Just carelessness I think. I will do it next. :hmm:

thank you, Alan. Thraso is brought to a close with a final PL ok. Woah, the guy was quite willing to rape and pillage here...good thing his intentions always exceed his abilities :lol:

Only one thing: careful with some stage directions inside your speech, on two occasions you did not leave too much space for Todd to play with ;) not need to reupload though, he'll manage.

A great comic character here, well done Alan ! And thanks. See you in the next one, I'm sure

oooh 8-) how cool, you managed to totally get into a eunuchial character, complete with a softer higher voice. He sound sooo endearing, a bit too tender to deal with the hardships of life. I totally love the performance. Thanks so much, Frédéric !

All the lines are in, but I have one small note for the voice credit:

> at 0:01: for the voice credit, please always use the full description (as you can see in the MW): “Dorus, a Eunuch slave, read by”

the rest is fine :)

Gnatho, the parasite, is in the MW ready for PL.

yikes, Gnatho shows a nasty streak in the final scene when he hands over Thraso, whom he constantly humoured all through the rest of the play. :shock: Those two will really sound great together :mrgreen: Knew it ! Excellent job you're doing here, Todd. I love the huge monologue in the beginning where he starts talking in different voices for the beggarman. :thumbs: I wouldn't be surprised if this was Molière's role back in the days.

Acts 4 and 5 are already PL ok.

notes for act 2:

> at 6:27: “that no go-between might perchance be secretly running from the Captain to her?” – you say “that a go-between”, which is the exact opposite

notes for act 3:

> at 3:00: “When she speaks of Phædria, do you instantly mention Pamphila. If at any time she says, “Let’s invite Phædria to make one,”do you say, “Let’s ask Pamphila to sing.” If she praises his good looks, do you, on the other hand, praise hers. In short, do you return like for like, which will mortify her.” – I would have a small improvement to suggest here to make the meaning clearer. Gnatho here proposes a scheme to Thraso. You make it sound as if he was asking a question. But it’s more like an order (or rather suggestion) that he is making. So: “if she mentions her lover, make sure that you mention another girl, so she will be jealous for once”. It might be easier understood if you emphasized it differently. :hmm: (optional of course, this is only my two-cents worth as meddling PLer :mrgreen: )

Fixed. It would have been sooner but Gutenberg was down and I couldn't proof against the script before I uploaded the changed files.

Thanks, Todd
