I love doing the plays of this period. I wish I'd spotted this one earlier, because all the best parts are gone, lol
Okay, from what is left, I'll take Everill, if that's okay.

Todd, if you don't mind, can you assign Meercraft to Hamlet and I will take another role after I take another look at the play? We discussed it and he would like it.

Ah, I saw Everill is a rather wicked little supporting character, so can I please have him. :)

all right, Todd, I had a go at Pug (why do I think of this cute little dog now :hmm: ) Please let me know if this is what you had in mind. I tried to make him extra ass-licking and bumbling in the beginning with his boss LOL later on he plays "cooler"

Oh and is it Engine with 'ee' or 'eye' ? I did the last line twice, to be on the safe side

WONDERFUL. I think you have caught him perfectly. PL OK.

I think En-gin (your first pronunciation) is fine as opposed to En-jeyen. It is probably the way that folks will read it anyway!.

Thanks, Todd

The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense-desires,
Is not born again into this world.’

both Acts PL ok and nicely done, Nemo :) Especially in the final act you were kinda too cheerio (or maybe smirking) considering the poor condition my poor Pug will be in, this will contrast excellently with my despair and whining LOL

Thanks !

thank you ! I had a blast doing him LOL in medieval mystery plays the devil always was the fun part to play, I can understand that well now :mrgreen:

btw I already visited the Devil's Arse cave in the Peak District, so I was highly amused when Pug mentioned it here.

yes I think so as well. Do you need me to delete the final line or is it ok like that ?

Pug trying (in vain) to bring about Lust and Adultery ! I'm having a lot of fun playing the tempter here :mrgreen: I really gave it my all to be plotting, conniving and convincing...so why is the mistress not going for it ? :evil:

I can't understand why all that wheedling wasn't enough.... Well done and methinks you are enjoying this role far too much. PL OK!

Thanks, Todd
