Todd: I noticed there is a final speech apparently spoken by the entire cast. It's too long a text to merge I guess. Do you have a preference who speaks it ? Or will you let each of us speak one sentence ? Should I insist on everbody recording the speech so you have a choice ?

Not only undone, but all done too (depending on Sonia's PL, of course).

Thanks, Todd

good idea !! You can even let each of us do part of the speech instead of merging it all. Best note it in the MW, so I won't forget.

Actually the speech fits very well to be spoken by the sisters.

:shock: I have just been witness to an old men being corrupted by desires :lol: All throughout he was so prim and upright and then in the end he succumbs after all. Wow, these Bacchides must have a rare talent with men ;) I will make sure to be extra seductive in my role.

An excellent job, I always had to smirk when you said you're undone. Lamenting your way through the play, I almost pity the guy because people will probably laugh at his misfortunes. Your dialogue with the other aged Athenian sharing your misfortunes (Alan) will be wonderful. :lol:

And you are not done yet (sorry). I found a few missed lines:

Act 2:

> at about 0:45: (p. 165) missed line: "Is he not come ?"
> at 1:05: (p. 165) "from his entertainer, Archidemides" – you say Archimedes here and the correct name later. Could you maybe say it the same way throughout the act ? so I suggest you correct this version

Act 4:

> at about 6:00: (p. 194) missed line: "Come, ask me."
> at about 7:37: (p. 198) please insert: "What's the matter ?"

Act 5:

> at 7:10: (p. 207) repeat "avaunt from me" – one version can be cut
> at about 7:55: (p. 208) two missed lines: "Certainly not – I won't – I don't care – let me alone, now." and "I had rather punish them both."
> at about 9:35: (p. 209) missed line: "How soon, in fact, we may be dead, d'ye mean ?"

thanks

I think I'll make a perfect twin sister for Kitty - the good one and the evil one... :mrgreen:

So long as I am not put in the position of having to decide which one is the good one and which one the bad one....

Thanks, Todd

thank you for saving me from the experience of having Chris as my twin. :?

And I think we are both bad this time...or rather: the kind of bad that men love :lol: We'll have fun.
