lovely acted out, Rebecca. You breeze in like a fresh air into this shop and nonchalantly deliver your lines. :clap: Loved it, I wish she had a bigger scene.

All PL ok, thank you so much. Hope to hear you in other plays soon.

Here is the short appearance of Kitty Willis. I had fun pretending to be a naive country wench :lol: I only hope Mattea sounds a bit similar in her portrayal as Mrs Touchwood. It has to be credible that Courtall would fall for the trick. :lol: Maybe I should have waited for her role to come in first :hmm: But I went for genuinely naive and shy and was hoping that would be not too far off the mark.

Yes. But you are already in Act 4, so use a different voice for this Act 3 character.

Thanks, Todd

Lady Frances Touchwood ready for PL:
excellently played, Mattea, she sounds very naive and innocent but still forcefully getting her will if she really wants to. :thumbs: Now hearing you I am not sure I sound similar as Kitty when I have to "play" Lady Frances. How Courtall could fall for the trap is a mystery to me :lol:

Acts 2-4 are straight PL ok.

A few missed lines for Act 5 though:

> at about 1:31: missed line: "A-propos; now we shall be informed. Mr. Saville, I rejoice to see you, though Sir George will be disappointed: he's gone to your lodgings."

> at about 2:30: missed OMNES line: "Ha! ha! ha!"

> at about 3:01: missed OMNES line: "Joy! joy! joy!"

thanks !

Sonia
