thank you so much, Jenn, Bertha is so lovely. :9: The weeping-scene was so endearing and everything was perfect. This Act is PL ok

However, I noticed that Bertha has a short appearance in Act 3 as well...(p. 155-156, maybe later as well, but these are the only lines I could find at a quick glance). I'll add another section to your role, you're not through yet ;)

thanks

Thanks, Sonia :9:

Here are the lines for Act 3. I hope I got them all! And apparently Bertha is really energetic this act because she had a lot of coffee this morning :lol:

:lol: indeed, she sounds a bit over-enthusiastic. Had to grin all through the performance. Well, she is still young... *indulgent look*

thanks, Jenn, totally PL ok. And I believe that was it for Bertha.

Racehorse owners have been looking for the undetectable dope for years, but I reckon he must be working for me, because whenever something goes wrong, I can never find out who’s responsible!

and here is the lengthy act 2. I spent the whole afternoon editing it :shock: Mrs Spencer finds out that charity may come at a high price. And poor Reverend Brice seems smitten by her. :mrgreen:

Diana Jermyn. You are really in a heap of trouble, aren't you? What were you thinking? Doing good works as an angel in disguise - well, we all know how that is going to turn out!

But all is well and PL OK in the files until the middle of Act 3. Then you forgot who you are or are not and spoke one of Miss Moxon's lines at 3:44 "Yes, you appear to have made a very bad beginning." Alas, though quite excusable as you did spend all of Act 2 being Miss Moxon. Anyway, leave it in and when I edit I will decide which of you is actually Miss Moxon at that point in time....

Great performance throughout.

Thanks, Todd

I can quickly reupload it though, it's no trouble.

No, I think it might actually be you speaking. Leave it for me to decide later.

no it was definitely Miss Moxon at that point. Even when I was Miss Moxon in disguise, my role was always pointed out as Mrs Jermyn. Otherwise there would have been many more errors :lol:

But ok, I leave it in, but I'm sure it was not one of my lines.

The Reverend awaits in the MW for you presence in whichever PL persona you wish to assume at this time.

Thanks you, your unworthiness, Todd

awww, my heart goes out to this poor love-smitten reverend :9: you play him so tenderly, yet at the same time bumbling and kind-hearted. Absolutely great performance. I fear Mrs Jermyn may have gotten a soft spot for him if she had stayed longer. (thinking ahead also what a coarse behaviour Chris as her real hubby will cook up :lol: ) Nobody in the audience will understand why she doesn't fall for him.

But, it wasn't meant to be...still, wonderful performance, and I am looking forward to hearing our dialogue assembled.

Both acts PL ok. The first one was huge ! :shock:

thank you

Sonia
