sorry for the PL delay....busy these days. But both acts are perfectly PL ok right away. :thumbs: Compared to other authors, Fielding is keeping the directions to a minimum :lol:

thank you

Here's the preface and stage directions for act 1.

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/tomthumb_narrator_1_128kb.mp3 @ 19.38

I realise that Todd won't need most of the dramatis personae, as that's being read by the actors, but I've included it in full anyway just in case. Anything not needed he can just ignore.

Thank you for including everything in the Dramatis Personae. Some reader always forgets something in their credit so I will be using your words. And, it also is a big help to me in assembling the play to know in what order all those credits should go. Finally, I use the credits in your voice as the source of names if I have to augment a stage direction with a character name before an action in a sequence where it might be difficult for a reader to know who is speaking.

Thanks, Todd

:shock: wow that was indeed a lengthy introduction. But extremely well narrated, with a sort of tongue-in-cheek vibe in your voice. :thumbs: Fitting for the satire. I also love your Aristotle impersonation :lol:

only one small missing bit which I think should be included to make the sentence complete:

> at 1:41: (p. 41) part of sentence missing: "by the title of Mynheer Vander Thumb"

and one note for the dramatis personae. No need to change it this time, I only mention it for future projects. I think Todd can extract the info, if he needs it for this time.

> at 17:19: (p. 48) "Noodle, Doodle..etc" - technically we need them both as separate voice credits. Same for Bailiff and Follower, Cleora and Mustacha, Courtiers Guards etc.

thank you, Michael, super well done.

Grizzle act 3
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/tomthumb_lordgrizzle_3.mp3
And so I end up dead :hmm:
you could have fooled me :lol: this guy is speaking over a page long after he got fatally stabbed. Taking the dramatic endings a bit too far meseems. :mrgreen:

And don't fret over your death, you're in good company, I don't think there are many that survive this play. There's mass-murder in the final act. :?

However, don't die completely yet ! You are not done yet !

> at about 0:06: you missed Scene VII (p. 95) where you have 3 quotes:"Thus far..." (3 lines) / "This day..." (5 lines) / "What friends we have..." (2 lines)

thanks

Hi
I'm recording the dialogues of Mustacha and the link I opened has a few blank pages after a bit so I thought that before I uploaded the recordings, I'd confirm the dialogues. (please help me out!!!!!)
In Act 2, she's got a few lines in Scene 3 and act 3 it seems to be the one dialogue in last act when she kills and is killed.
If there's any more that I couldn't find, please let me know (what a bunch of lifesavers you lot)
THANKS A LOT
-SS
