Hello!

I could take care of Augusto if he's still open!

Thanks!

this dad is a total conman ! :evil: seriously...honour ? stealing figs from the neighbour is honourable ? conning a woman out of her money ? selling off the son into a loveless marriage ? tststs...not your most brilliant moments. But you portray the sleezeback quite convincingly (now I'm a bit worried). Excellently done, and totally PL ok.

thanks

Just a quick heads-up: I have recorded Madame Pepita in all her one-hour glory :shock: but it will take a bit for the editing. :D
Cheers,
Ava.

Thought you might like some stage directions to PL. :)

Todd, as requested in your initial post, I’ve read the dates for the translator, “(1876 - 1946)”, but you might want to cut those if you think it sounds odd to include the translator’s dates but not the author’s dates.

Thank you.

I think the idea is that if there is a translator, their dates will drive the PD status of something.

That's true, at least outside the US.

thank you, Michael, this was a huge job again :shock: what a play, and the author is almost as eloquent in the stage directions as Pinero (only almost though).

Act 1 is straight PL ok, but I have a few small notes for the other acts:

Act 2:

> at 14:15: (p. 207) "Don Guillermo to Madame Pepita..." - we need to add the name here again, as Catalina was going out in the previous comment

Act 3:

> at 14:07: (p. 237) "Catalina and Alberto in unison" - actually such notes can be left out, as Todd will simply merge the voices

> at 15:22: (p. 239) "Don Guillermo pacing up and down..." - you forgot to say the name

thanks ! brilliant job, considering how long it was.

I'm sure my Spanish accent is amusing at best but I had fun with it and that's all that matters right?

If no one else has claimed him, I would like to read Alberto, aged 22.
