Holroyd act 2 revised

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/widowingofmrsholroyd_holroyd_2.mp3

My dialect is more English West Country (Gloucestershire) than East Midlands, but I will be surprised if many of our listeners can tell the difference :hmm:
Act 2 is PL OK! Thank you!

I think in my previous post I unintentionally put emphasis on dialects, which aren't really a concern, when I meant that I wanted to make sure the meaning was clear. Sorry for any confusion!

Now that Holroyd is complete and as he is not in act 3 shall I read Rigley as no one else has claimed it? I can probably voice it a bit differently 😺

Yes that would be great thanks

Glad to be back.

Laura is PL OK! Thank you!

Just a note for when you record parts for other dramatic works, it's helpful to the editor putting all the parts together if you leave a pause of around 3-4 seconds between each line. There's no need to make any changes to this file though, it's fine as is!

Blackmore Act 1 is PL OK! Thank you! It will be tomorrow before I can PL Acts 2 and 3, but I'll get to them as soon as I can.

Acts 2 and 3 sound great! Just a few notes:

Act 2:
- At 0:53, there's a missing line: "He had a row with Jim Goodwin."
- At 1:44, "an' forgotten I came in with you," you say "an' forgetting."

Act 3:
- There's a missing line at 2:50, "Good-night" (it's easy to miss because he's listed after Mrs. Holroyd in the character heading).

Act 2 is PL OK! Thank you!

Just one minor thing for Act 3: in the text, "Good-night" appears before the line "Can't I go for you, Mrs. Holroyd?" (2:48), but you say it afterwards (2:53). If you could cut and paste it to go before that line, you'll be all set!

Here's the updated file. I put the "good night" at 2:53 originally because the PL Note said it was missing at 2:50. No worries, though.
