Not really possible to make this character any less unpleasant. An overbearing father.
I love it very much, Alan. I don't hear you often in the villain part, but this father is really quite nasty. Well he would be if he wasn't so much conned in this situation. :lol: The perfect duped overbearing father. They beat him at his own game.

Hope you're feeling better. At least this part is excellently played, and PL ok. :)

Thank you !

Sonia

I would be happy to read the Countryman, 1st lawyer, and police officer if that is not too much.

Sure, they are all in different acts.

However, be careful your countryman peasant behaves properly - you don't want to have a conflict that means you have to arrest and prosecute or defend yourself!!

Thanks, Todd

Here is Julia for all three acts :)
what a super-sweet Julia this is. But the best part is when she plays the rebellious daughter. I especially love the very forceful NO ! right at the end. This really sounded genuine :lol: well done.

Only one thing to correct, maybe right in Act 1:

> at 0:01: for the voice credit, please always include the full description of the MW: "Julia, daughter to Oronte"

I can mark Acts 2 and 3 PL ok then.

thank you

both parts are PL ok straight away, thanks !

haha, the officer was especially fun to listen to. He had such a mean joy in getting Pourceaugnac into prison. :lol: Loved it. But all three roles are excellent and PL ok. Thanks, Campbell !

Todd, when did you upload the Physician ? :shock: I didn't see a note of that, so I only just saw him now.

Perfect job, though this guy is creepy in his bloodlust somehow. Wouldn't want to be his patient. :? And this huge monologue :shock: I pity the poor actor who has to learn this by heart to recite on stage. Though I guess it didn't matter what they were rambling on at one point or other :lol: I had to laugh several times while listening to this tirade.

BTW although you claim total ignorance of the Carry On series (yes, that one again... :mrgreen: ) I think you sound a lot like Kenneth Williams in this role, especially in the beginning. :thumbs: I could fully imagine him playing this role.

I guess both acts can be marked PL ok.There is one optional note for Act 1:

> at 4:12: "that our patient here present is unhappily attacked" - you say "attached", which makes less sense, but considering that this physician is rambling on anyway and not making much sense on the whole, I let you decide whether you want to change this or not

great job ! This will be a funny scene.

Sonia
