ambersweet,

You have a ~ in front of the title. Do you really need a DPLer?

If so, I would volunteer.

Hawkes act 1

https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/pegomyheart_hawkes_1.mp3

Sorry its a bit late :D
Alan, if I need a solicitor, are you for hire? :D

Great reading!! Perfect inflection.

Just two small items:

2:18: To his immediate relations he left. I heard relatives

3:27: That was why he spoke of her. I heard is. Your call.

Can't wait for Act 3

Outstanding job, Chris. I felt like I was back in England. Oh, wait, I never went into a house with a butler like THAT!

Act 2 for Peg is ready! Grab a snack and some tea...it's a long one (37:30):

Jenn,

That was amazing. I will listen to this play when it is finished just to be able to hear your wonderful characterization again and in context. And you singing was out of this world.

Now down to business. Three things for you to look at (that is an amazingly small number with a recording this long).

3:25: I want to tell you I'd have a much sweeter disposition if you wouldn't talk against my father. I heard I'd have such a sweeter disposition…

33:36.5: We'll talk when we get upstairs. I heard “walk.”

34:04: I"ll do all the talking, though what the devil I'll say I don't know. Missed the word “all”. Your call.

I can't wait to listen to Act III.

And finally Act 3 for Peg:

https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/pegomyheart_peg_3_128kb.mp3

I believe there is a part in this Act where you may need a laugh. If none of the ones I added to Act 1 work well, I'll be glad to do more.
I just couldn't wait. It was great again (or still).

Again, a couple of things to fix:

11:17: I thought of ye all last night. You left out the word “all”. I think it really adds to the meaning of the sentence.

12:14: It isn't every girl has the bringing up I had from my father. I heard “wasn't”.

12:33: Missed last part of speech: All right. The door is shut. (pg 126)

And it all came our right in the end. :clap:

Hawkes act 1 corrected

https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/pegomyheart_hawkes_1.mp3
13.52

I am not convinced that either of these mistakes significantly changes the sense of what I say, but I have corrected them anyway.

FYI, Alaric was a Goth general in the Roman Army who, in 410 led a revolt of the Goths and led the sack of Rome. (very short version of his life.) He died in 410.

Have fun.
