thanks Sandra, so great. Frances has been perfectly impersonated by you 8-) Can't wait to hear your dialogue with Tomas in this scene. You are coming down quite heavy on him here LOL

PL ok

For act 5 I did a few versions of the shared line so you can choose which is best to match with the other character

Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years...

hahaha, making the most of this one line, I see ;) well, good idea to leave Todd the choice. All Acts are flawlessly acted out. No lines missing, so perfectly PL ok, Jason, thanks !

I was just checking through the roles I signed up for a while back and didn't get around to reading. I thought Engine was one but maybe it was 'unclaimed' by a system glitch?

Anyway, if I could sign up again, that would be good. I will get to it this weekend.

I automatically drop claims that are two months old with no reader request for extension. Since it is still open you may have it again.

Thanks, Todd

yay thanks. And don't worry, if anything is unclear we can sort it out :) And you probably can keep that moustache which you are growing for Monsieur Guillaume, I'm sure it will fit the Keeper as well :mrgreen:

I'll sign you up !

Hi Todd,

The Engine has finally arrived at the station. British Rail apologises for the delay, which was due to leaves on the track between Euston and Watford Gap.

Ah, those pesky Autumn leaves
Delay our parts and we do grieve.
But at last away they blow
And finally the train comes through!

Thanks, Todd

thank you Rob, especially for inspiring Todd to break out into spontaneous poetry. :shock:

I like Engine somehow, even though he is a scoundrel. And you play him excellently. Of course when he starts to talk bawdy about Dicky Robinson as crossdresser in Act 2, that's when you really get into your element, Rob ;) Loved this part ! I blame in on all those city comedies you are offering :mrgreen:

Act 3 is already PL ok

Few PL notes for 1 and 2:

act 1:

> voice credit: could you please read the whole characteristics: "Engine, a Broker, read by Rob Board"

> at about 0:36: missing part: (p. 272 top): "I forgot to give it you." to be found at 0:55. Could you paste it at the correct spot to make life easier for Todd ?

> at 1:45: missing part (p. 280 bottom): "to tell you true..."etc. 3 lines missing

Act 2:

> at 0:39 and 0:44: "Of the king's glover ?" is repeated, is there one version you prefer or do you leave the choice to Todd ? :hmm:

> at about 1:16: missing sentence (p. 285 top): "Yes sir, he was writing this morning very hard."

Thank you :)

Sonia

I often break into poetry. It is just that usually I don't inflict it on others....

Thanks, Todd
