hahaha, I had to giggle when he mentioned for the third time his singing. Seems he is an unquenchable source of oldies songs :lol: nice performance Linda, you convey his character quite well (according to the stage directions). Loved it ! And PL ok.

thanks

thank you, Andrew. Not one of the bigger roles but you took out the most you could. I love the deep voice you put on here. I really picture the guy chewing on a cigar. :lol: Short appearance, but worth it. I always wonder why they don't give minor characters at least a few more lines in a scene. :|

Perfectly PL ok. :)

I have some stage directions for you. You'll be pleased to hear that this time Pinero doesn't have me interrupting the speeches quite as much as he usually does. :)

The last file is for act 3? - It will have overwritten the act 2 file in the uploader so if your can rename the second 2 to 3 (if that is correct) and then upload them both again that would be very helpful.

Thanks, Todd

Sorry, just a typo in the last line of that post. The files are OK, but the links should read

indeed, for a Pinero, this was quite a "short" narrator part, but very well narrated again, Michael, thank you so much.

I am amazed how often Petch enters the scene in this act :lol: I think she is the one character you mentioned most often here.

Act 1 is PL ok. Acts 2 and 3 have to wait for tomorrow though, as I don't think I'll find the quiet time today still. But it's on my to-do-list, it won't be forgotten.

Hi,

I would like to sign up to take a shot at parts 1, 2, and 3. Petch and the Hon, George Liptrott. I am curious as to whether or not I will be able to play a middle-aged servant woman. :)

Thank you,

Arnaldo
