wow Noodle is some piece of work with his sneering voice throughout :lol: Must have been hard to keep up I imagine. And I definitely love the dying exclamation at the end. :thumbs: Excellent performance, this play is really absurd :lol:

All of Noodle PL ok. Thanks, Andrew !

:lol: excellent Jenn ! The contrast of the mostly silly things the princess has to say and the overdone pathos in your voice while saying them makes the whole thing wonderfully hilarious. :thumbs: Great job and all of Huncamunca PL ok.

Thank you. So far all I heard is very promising

:oops: I hang my head in shame. I have no idea how I could overlook this whole scene :shock: Great that you noticed, Alan. And the rest of Act 2 is also PL ok. And I made sure this time the act is really at an end. :lol:

see you for the bloody finale ! Get ready for some dying groans as well.

I think she's just in the one scene (pg 57-58 in the text, 70-71 in the PDF).

Oh! Ha - I didn't see that there was more than one section for the role. :lol: I wondered how it was ascertained that the giantess loved Tom Thumb, and the king loved her, in just those three or four lines!

I should be able to send in more tomorrow.

Hmm, not Shakespeare perhaps, but just as violent...

Could you put me down for Doodle please Todd, and I’ll sketch in the details later.


Cheers,
Chris

already a promising debut, you play the deposed giant queen with the needed pathos and grandeur. :thumbs: Thank you Tricia, so far it's PL ok. Looking forward to the rest.

:lol: this parson is extremely funny, I love the sing-song approach you are doing here :thumbs: nice comedy touch, especially considering that the final simile with the maggots is not at all flattering to Tom Thumb, but still delivered with a smile on your face. Hilarious.

Only one note regarding the voice credit:

> for the voice credit, also here, please include the full description written in the MW, here: Parson, of the side of the church, read by David Purdy"

the rest is perfect. Thanks
