excellent, thank you Adam. Florus is still a little hot-headed ;) you're quite convincing at playing the jealous lover :mrgreen:

only a couple of notes here for correction:

> at 0:41: concerning the lines:
"Florus in Justina's house
Leaves and enters like a master!—
These are not unfounded jealousies,
These are real and substantial."
ok this sounded strange to me, because it's much more likely that Lelius would say this about Florus. So on a hunch I checked with the original scan (it's what I do), and indeed this is a quote for Lelius. Gutenberg had a mix-up here and in fact, two lines for Florus are missing here. Please cut this out, and instead insert:
"What shall I say ?
Never was I so embarrassed."

you can check here, page 180: https://archive.org/details/dramasca00cald/page/180/mode/2up

> from 3:30 till the end: starting with "being here": all this belongs to the third act. Could you cut it out here and make a separate file for this please ? Act 3 will then be complete, because all the lines are in :thumbs:

Thanks

Sonia
Woah, I guess I didn't notice the act break between 1 and 2, guess that's what I get for overrelying on cntrl-F! Good job catching that line mix up on Gutenberg's part~! :clap: :clap:

And yes, apparently I've fallen into quite a few jealous lover roles! 1) Cary in a Little Girl from Old Boston, 2) David from Andrew the Glad, 3) Myrtle from the Conscious Lovers, and now Florus! But I've done sarcastic sea gods, Kiwi clerics, Albanian warlords, snobby lawyers, disembodied voices, and megalomaniac Italian journalists too now! I'm diversifying! :lol:

Anyway, the corrected versions of Florus should be ready for the spot PL!

well the good news is that you are finished now faster than expected. :mrgreen: All three acts are now PL ok. Thanks

oops, I seem to have overlooked this submission, sorry about that Tomas. But I listened to it now and Clarin is perfectly PL ok. :thumbs: These scenes with Livia and Moscon will be very funny I think. :lol: But I think my favourite is when he tries to make a pact with the devil himself and doesn't get accepted.

Excellent job again, thank you so much.

The Albanian warlord was just a bit part in the Count of Monte Cristo! Not even a real character, just one of the characters quoting the warlord a few times!

I have assembled the play to the extent I can with the missing parts.

Thanks, Todd

Could I clarify if the readers of main parts are all putting in a track for Chorus of Voices and People - Within, for you to mix, please?

Thanks,

Timothy

My intention is that someone will actually claim that section. Depending on what I receive and/or how I feel the day I edit, I may play with that one submittal to have it sound more like multiple people (same file in two or three tracks - I do not use any voice altering effects), or I might just treat it as another solo character.

This is different from what I would do if the play had said "ALL:" for the lines. Then I would want contributions from other character part files.

Thanks, Todd
