nice :lol: quite a funny character, I loved the scene with Lucy. Setter is your typical plotter and schemer. Excellently acted out, Alan, thank you. This part is PL ok right away. :thumbs:

excellent job, Adrian. Eternally frightened Sir Wittol was quite funny to listen to :lol: Now I almost pity you in the short scene we have together :mrgreen:

Act 3 is already PL ok.

one PL note for Act 2:

> at 0:35: "the very remembrance makes me quake" – you say "resemblence"

PL notes for Act 4:

> at 0:43: "I've enough to say" – you say "I've had enough" which is a change of meaning here in this context, as they speak about talking to the ladies

> from 2:23-5:38: can you cut all these lines and put them in a separate file for Act 5 please ? Then Act 5 will be PL ok as well, no errors in there

thank you

Sonia

Dear Sonia,
Here are the corrections:
The corrected and slimline act 4: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/oldbachelor_sirjosephwittol_4_128kb.mp3 @ 2:25
and the split out act 5:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/oldbachelor_sirjosephwittol_5_128kb.mp3 @ 3:27

As to being eternally frightened, if you'd been what I'd been through, agad, would you not have been? Zooks, I even lost my hundred pound.

thank you, Adrian, Acts 4 and 5 are now PL ok.

You seem to have forgotten to reupload Act 2 though, the error is still in:

And Todd: here is the epilogue, enacted by Laetitia in her usual panache, wit and a bit of a sneer:

Recording time: 2:04 min.

Hope you like it. Nothing like insulting audience and critics a bit at the end of the show. :mrgreen:

Sonia
What a closing! They won't leave the theater, and be howling for more! PL OK.

Thanks, Todd

:lol: indeed, but you made up for it in the final act ;)

excellent job again, Alan. You are good at pimping :mrgreen: Act 4 is already PL ok but I found a small thing to correct in Act 5:

> at 1:34: "when you had seen her last?" - you say "you and I had", which is a bit bizarre to ask, she doesn't want to know about Setter

the rest is perfect :thumbs: thank you

and Todd: thanks for the PL and the review :9:

Setter act 5 revised

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/oldbachelor_setter_5_128kb.mp3

I enjoyed this role. As soon as I saw it I knew it was my part. As you say perhaps I would make a good pimp :mrgreen:

:lol: wow now this this brilliant, Jennifer :clap: I have chuckled all through the performance. You took the qualification "affected" quite to extremes. I loved the character. She is highly affected, but nevertheless a voice of reason and you bring out both qualities very well. She is not one to be trifled with. And I simply loved the laughs and rapid-fire comments in the first half of the act. :thumbs:

Can't wait to hear the rest of it. And I hope we get a courageous Bellmour soon who can take her on in this dialogue.

I do have two PL notes for you though:

> for the voice credit, could you please always read the entire description (usually marked in the MW), so the narrator doesn't have to be inserted, here: "Belinda, her cousin, an affected lady, in love with Bellmour, read by Jennifer Pratt"

> at about 3:54: missed line: "Not I; witness my heart, I stay out of pure affection."

thank you

Sonia
