Here's Parmeno:
thank you Kristin, excellent job with Parmeno throughout :clap: he's a typical Molière trickster and you play him to perfection. I love both his suave snippish comments and his moments of exasperation. Good characterization.

All acts PL ok, apart from a few repetition cuts in Act 5. Could you check these again and only leave the version you prefer, please:

> at 3:23: Master, in the first place, I would have you persuaded
> at 3:33: whatever has happened in this affair has happened through no fault of mine.
> at 5.13: She’s looking for me.
> at 5:41: Does it appear

thank you

I liked the bloke too :mrgreen: He's a very hand-on, no-nonsense guy. Mrs Woffington would probably have loved him :lol:

thank you, it's PL ok.

excellent job, Tomas :thumbs: Though the guy is a bit of lecher and taking advantage of the girl so unscrupulously and even bragging about it, that was a bit rich :shock: But all throughout, wonderfully portrayed, both in his despair moments as in his more light-hearted scenes.

I can mark Acts 2 and 5 already PL ok.

For Act 3 I found a textual error:

> at 0:01: also, so you don't have to reupload 2 files, could you give us the full voice credit in this act: please insert "his son" to the description

> at 2:17: "She gave orders that we male was to come near her" - this sounded strange to me so I checked the original scan, and as I suspected, it should indeed be "no male", which makes more sense: https://archive.org/details/comediesofterenc00tere_1/page/100

thanks

Act 3 is fixed, Sonia. Thanks for the PL. I knew the line sounded ungrammatical, but wasn't sure if it was intentional. Thanks for double checking! :)
