Sorry about that, the Woman's Voices were under the wide rubric of "Chorus of Villagers" so I wasn't sure if they counted as Villagers.
yes I understand your reasoning. The thing is here only because it was specified that these are women, so naturally they would not be included in the "male" ALL parts.

All is fine and PL ok now :) thank you

Rev Dormer awaits PL in the MW. He is used to waiting, a sad man, world weary long before his time.

Thanks, Todd

Hi Sonia,
Please give me an extension of another month on my role. I’ve been swamped with ACX work. Thank You! :D :D

I absolutely loved this performance, Todd. You play out the bitterness and resignation extremely well, and he veers between malice and compassion (or even love) towards Kate. There is a significant quote in Act 2 which reinforces my belief that it really was Kate's mother that the parson loved. In the end he totally redeems himself by his actions. A strong character. Well played. :thumbs:

Acts 2 and 3 already PL ok.

A very minor detail to correct in act 1:

> at about 2:32: there should be two "No" one after the other, you only have one version

thanks

Sonia

Getting back at last to the pre-Christmas editing backlog. Here is the narrator, act 1, for PL:

And finally, narrator act 3:

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/squire_narrator_3_128kb.mp3 @21:14

In the scene of this act (page 90), I think that ‘Bed lime’ should probably read ‘Red lime’ and that ‘Amber line’ should be ‘Amber lime’. The phrase ‘shut it (bureau) up’ sounds like a later explanatory addition: I’ve simply read ‘shut the bureau up’, which means the same but avoids wording which would be confusing to listen to.

yes I think that was a clever way to get around this. The whole script was a bit of a mess too, it wasn't easy to get it all correctly. :| I have a few notes as a result here, I hope I found everything. My eyes were tearing staring at the script and making sense of some things. :?

PL notes for Act 1:

> at 1:10: "villagers" can be cut, we actually have special descriptions for them all, you can see them all in the MW: Voice - Loud Voice – Child - Woman's Voice - Man's Voice. Also, don't forget to include your own credit at the end, "Stage directions read by Michael Maggs"

> at 4:54: (L. C.—putting her arms round his neck) – we need to include "Christiana" here, as there is a long description of Izod inside her speech, so it we need to mention again, who is it were are talking about

> at 5:12: "Christiana, looking round" – also here, typo in Gutenberg, the name should be bold, this is Christiana's speech, so you need to name here

> at 22:39: "to Christiana" – you simply say "Chris"

> at 27:44: "right of table" – also here, since a lengthy description of Felicity is inside the speech, we need to repeat "Kate" here once again

> at 28:42: "Kate. (Eric rises and stands R., C., To Fel., pointing to door L.)" – I think this is a typo again. I would say "Eric rises and stands R., C.," and then "Kate, to Felicity, pointing to door L"

PL notes for Act 2:

> at 19:11: "From Eric when his regiment was quartered at—" I checked with the original scan, this is actually Kate speaking, so it can get cut (Note to myself: need to insert this sentence into my file at 9:58, because I also overlooked it when I recorded my role)

PL notes for Act 3:

> at about 1:15: missed line: "murmurs from all"

> at 3:07: "C. to Felicity" – I think this should be "Christiana to Felicity" (not "center") as it makes sense that she would order her about

> at about 4:57: missed line "the countryman's song" – since nobody is actually singing this, the narrator should mention it

that's all. Excellent job, considering it was such a long narration and so messy to read from. Thank you so much again, Michael. Now Todd has a good foundation to start assembling on.
