I was wondering whether the Household God might be read by the narrator, but I see you have that role down for Kitty. Is that intended? You don't have her listed against Staphyla, Act 1

Alan - thank you

Michael - I was wrong with Kitty being a household god - should have been me. (Kitty is not just a household god, she is god of everything!) Were you wanting to read the Narrator?

Thanks, Todd

Sorry - I hear the narration and the household god as different voices in my mind.

Thanks, Todd

Todd, here is grumpy Staphila. She's not happy with all at the unfair treatment given her in this household. :evil: I guess she's in need of a stiff drink. :lol:

I had fun and I am sorry that she doesn't appear in the last two acts...maybe the actress had to leave early back in the days :hmm:

Grumpy - but perfect in this role. Staphila is PL OK.

Thanks, Todd

thank you, Alan, you are excelling again in the wise-cracking servant role. 8-) So cool that he has quite a big role, more for me to enjoy.

Just one very small edit to make:

> at 5:02: (p. 392) "do you ask ?" – you say "I"

the rest perfect. And I learnt a new pronunciation: "pumice", while I know what it means, I've never heard it spoken until now, and I would have mispronounced it if I had to read it in a text. Will try to remember it now.

Sonia
