For a while through the play I wondered if the two brothers were to be near twins and played by the same actor with quick change magic, but finally in the last scene they are both present.
yes that could have been an obvious conclusion, but no, twins wouldn't work here, as Jocelyn would immediately have noticed the resemblence, since he saw both men. Florence as well, come to that.

Excellent portrayal, Todd, I loved the whole performance. Mable is a sort of neutral character, more or a good guy, but you didn't make him boring at all. Kind and tender-hearted at all times, even with his rascal brother in the end.

Acts 1 and 2 already PL ok

One small significant error in Act 3 though:

> at 8:43: (p. 79) "that lady his wife ?" – you say "man" :lol: poor Rosaline received a sex-change from you.

thank you

Mable Act 3 fixed. What kinda gender correctness are you expecting from a man named Mable anyway?

Thanks, Todd

probably true...strange that we now have two plays with male Mables at the same time. :hmm: (update: the other was Myrtle, not Mable, my mistake, but the names are similar :lol: )

Womanhood restored. PL ok now.

May I claim the part of Florence if she is still available?

of course, thank you very much. Looking forward to your interpretation of the role 8-)

And Todd: here is a re-do of that one line from Rosaline. I tried to be extra expressive to make the sounds come out right. I did say the same thing last time, but I hope I managed to make it clearer this time. :? If you still hear the other thing, I don't know how I can change it to make it clearer.
