As I am sure you guessed, I just read the parts as they appear in the 'script'.
yes I know and I recommended that, because usually all the descriptions are in the script. The thing to watch out for in the script is only the groupings because we need them with separate credits for the different readers. So checking the MW as well as not to miss any is always a good method.
Thank you so much for the kind words about the Epiloge :9: it was fun.
credit where credit is due :thumbs: It was also extremely fun to listen to.

And now you can take a big breath of relief: all Stage Directions are PL ok. :clap: Again: so sorry for the extensive notes :(

Have a nice weekend, and thank you for your patience !

Hi!
Could you please tell me what the line "tir'd on't" of Mrs. Fagg means? I guess "tired on it" and "on" is a typo, there should be "of".
Please advise.
Thanks)

I think this is antiquish English :lol: "tired on it" can be just as right there. I would leave it as it is. :)

Here is Mrs. Fagg)

haha, Mrs Fagg sounds like quite a jaded lady who knows how to get her money ;) nicely characterized Hanna :thumbs: All PL ok.

Just one note for future recordings: you start and end very abruptly. Please leave at least 1 second of silence at the beginning and also at the end of a stage role. This is to make it easier for our hard-working editor to get a hold to copy and paste. If you start too close to the beginning it may be hard to cut accurately without cutting off the first sound.

I think Todd will manage this time, but I wanted to mention it for future recordings.

Thank you

Sonia

I'm glad you liked Mrs Fagg)
Thanks for letting me know of 1 sec at the end and at the beginning of the record. I haven't though about it lately.
Thank you for your kind feedback)

Yes; those two characters are separated by several acts so listeners will not be confused.

Thanks, Todd
