The Lover is ready for final PL.
I'm downloading it to give it a final listen :)

while I'm here, I simply cannot resist playing Nance in the Pinero play 8-) I can suitably snap at any farm-hand that happens to be around. :mrgreen: (btw you wrote Mance instead of Nance in the MW)

Also: I'll do the short role of the Maid in Short and Sweet.

And finally: Art in Availle's new play, if I may.

The other play is not PD for me unfortunately.

I really liked The Lover. Sierra is a good find for more plays.

Thanks, Todd

Wise casting, I think. Better that the Gladiator sound more like Russell Crowe than The Crocodile Hunter. :wink:

I'll take the slightly confusingly-titled Anglo-Saxon Digger please Todd.

Cheers,
Chris
