Albina is PL OK.

Strange ending to the play - a warning of great danger ahead, and then the curtain falls....

Thanks, Todd

Hi, I’d like to claim Agrippina. :)

I would be interested in doing Nero if that works.

well done again, David :clap: Britannicus sounds very sober, but still apprehensive of his precarious situation here. It's quite nicely conveyed by the way you portray him :) PL ok.

Thanks

Just finished the stage directions for the Pinero one act play, so this looks easy be comparison, so I'd be glad to read the stage directions for this.

Narcisus act 2

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/britannicus_narcissus_2.mp3

This character is starting to play a devious game of his own :hmm:

I find this English translation very easy to read aloud. It may not be much like the poetic style of Racine but it is a decent text in its own right :thumbs:

yes I also like the translation. :)

And indeed...Narcissus is proving quite the manipulator here. Funny when he says to Nero he should rule himself and not submit to tutelage, but at the same time tells him exactly what to do :lol:

PL ok again, thank you, Alan !
