For Act 2 I have a note:

> at 0:13: (p. 57) how's Lady Gillingham" - you say "jill" here but "gill" later. Please choose one pronunciation (I say "gill" but it's up to you)

> at 1:17: (p. 79) "oh are you there Edith" - you have twice "oh", did you forget to cut one you didn't like ?


thanks

Sonia

thank you, David, for the dutiful announcement of the guests 8-) however you missed a few of them ;) in fact you missed some of the main cast :mrgreen:

> at about 0:19: (p. 60) missed line: "Mrs Boyle-Chewton, Miss Boyle-Chewton, and Mr Bargus."

> at about 0:24: (p. 71) missed line: "Lady Vivash"

I hope I found all the lines now. Quite tricky indeed.

I appreciate your keen eye for identifying my omissions, Sonia! Here is the file with the two missing lines added:

Just realised that I am pronouncing Lyster as Lye-ster while Dudley is saying Lis-ster. As we are talking to each other at the time this will sound odd. Do we need to be consistent?

*Shrug* Sounds like one of you has an accent to me. As long as you are each individually consistent I can be happy.

Thanks, Todd

I will definitely be individually consistent as I only say it once 👍

:lol: well you are typecasting yourself in that case, because you chose the role ;) and oh my....Lord G. is indeed a bit of a dotard. :lol: When he repeated his introduction line 3 times I thought :shock: he should be led away by kind people.

normally I would say it feels strange if someone says a name and the other repeats it differently, but in this case, considering it's Lord G. we are talking about, it may well be he is a bit hard-or hearing (and understanding) and it's perfectly normal that he would pronounce it differently :lol: all's well.

PL ok. Thanks Alan ! And maybe next time you want to go completely off-register with a roguish rebel, a lusty lover, a sadistic psychopath or a charming chamber-maid (for the last one you need to be quick, otherwise Chris will have claimed the role :lol: )

I’m holding out for a roguish, lusty, sadistic, charming chamber-maid role. With maybe a couple more adjectives thrown in gratis. There are six Australian States, you know.

Cheers,
Chris
