thank you, Kathi, you are a perfect nurse in this play, you give the needed amount of bewilderment to your voice, seems poor nurse is a bit stressed with her charge of Angelica in many scenes :lol: Nice performance.

I'll mark Acts 3 and 5 already PL ok, but I would like to advise you of the necessaity for silences between quotes for future drama recordings: please leave more space between the separate quotes, at least 2 seconds of silence, 3 would be even better. It will make the editor's job much easier if he has enough fiddling space to copy and paste the bits.

A good example is in Act 3: between 0:34 and 0:35: "O lord, who's there ?" [peeps] "what's here to do ?" and between 0:47 and 0:48: "O you young harlotry" [knocks]. "Od’s my life": best leave 2-3 seconds of silence between the quotes because the stage directions need to be inserted. It's ok for this time but please implement it on your next recordings. :)

I have one PL note for Act 2 though:

> at 1:16: "A teat, a teat—I an unnatural teat!" – you say "tat a tate" which changes the meaning here of this dialogue. What is meant is a teat (pronounced "teet" = nipple of a breast). Angelica is accusing the nurse of devilish practices, which exasperates her :lol:

thanks

ah while I'm at it, let me get Jeremy PLed as well. Another great performance, Alan. Jeremy is a mix between knowing wit and ingenue :lol: quite a dual personality, I cannot really fathom him out. Well done. And PL ok again.

Hope Act 2 is better. Will upload Act 4 and 5 soon.

Please advise if any further work is needed. I amplified volume until it showed as Passed on the checker.

Thanks,
Stella

thank you Stella, these are both excellent. You corrected everything perfectly and I noticed that you pay well attention to which "asides" have to go at the beginning of the speech. :thumbs: There were no errors at all in Act 3.

Both are straight PL ok. :clap: Great job ! And yes, the volume seems to be good now 8-)

Ah yes, only one small note, but no need to correct this time. But careful to leave 2-3 seconds between each chunk, even if they follow quite fast, as happened here when all those people were kissed. You didn't leave much space between the kisses, but he always talked in between, so we need to paste speech there. Easier to do when there is enough space ;)

Thank you

Sonia

Foresight awaits PL in the MW.

By the way, in act 5, scene 8, the words "And there’s the handsome young woman, she, as they say, brother Val went mad for, she’s mad too, I think." should be spoken by Ben though now written as part of a line by Foresight. (I spoke the lines - just leave them in my file for now.) I marked the error in the MW for Ben.

Thanks, Todd

indeed I found a scan from the 19th century, on p. 81 here you can see that Foresight says the first bit and Ben the second part of this line wrongly attributed to Foresight alone: https://archive.org/details/congrevescomedy00conggoog/page/n82/mode/2up

so this is how it should be:

FORE. Mercy on us, I was afraid of this.
BEN. And there’s the handsome young woman, she, as they say, brother Val went mad for, she’s mad too, I think.

well done, Todd :thumbs:

I bet you had fun calling me hussy and other names :evil: though of course your words cannot really hurt someone like Angelica :lol: I especially loved the bragging scene with Sir Sampson, where both try to out-do each other with enumerations on how much they have seen and known in the world :lol:

Excellent job, you bring Foresight to life (in a doddering kind of way, of course :mrgreen: very fitting when he feels weak and needs to go to bed.)

Thanks, all acts PL ok

Here is Mrs. Foresight, Act 2. Since I have never done a play before - I'll wait for your feedback before getting the other three acts to you.

hi M, and sorry for the delay, but the weekend was quite busy, didn't get much time for PLing.

But your performance was really very good, very nicely portrayed. If this was your first venture into drama, I can say it sounds like you felt at ease :) I am already looking forward to how she will interact with her husband (don't spare him - I never do when I play the wife :lol: )

I can mark the first section PL ok already, but have two small notes for the upcoming acts:

> for the voice credit, please always use the full description as written in the Magic Window, here: "Mrs. Foresight, second wife to Foresight, read by..." Since there were no other lines missing, you don't need to reupload this act, simply include the full credit into Act 3 and I'll make a note for the editor to look there.

> regarding the silences between quotes, most of them are long enough, but some are less than 1 second, which is a bit tight for the editor to fiddle with and copy/paste. We suggest 2 to 3 seconds between each quote to make the job easier. Also here, no need to reupload this time, only something to consider for the next parts. :)

Thanks, great job. And I hope you liked acting out, so we hear you in plenty more plays.

Sonia
