Hi Sonia,
Actually no, none of these options suit my needs..... I just have difficulties convincing people that, though I have the most terribly German name and am a German living in Germany, I feel anything but that. I just hadn’t noticed it is so much lately as in my job, one doesn’t normally use my first name, and my colleagues and friends know me well enough...
Anyway, I hope to give Mrs Goodsir a good busybody-skittish kind of voice. :)
Regards,
Ulrike

Hi Sonia,
I've decided to give it a go before getting buried in marking...

Here are the bits pertaining to Mrs Goodsir, I believe that's it.
It's 44 s; I don't know if that matters, as it will be cut up anyway, and I didn't notice any noises I could've made.

Ulrike

it doesn't matter so much but it's always good to know from the start how long a section is, so the DPL knows how much time they will need to check. Sometimes they have time for small ones but not for long ones.

And you're absolutely great as the busy-body customer here :clap: I really loved your short role, and the character you gave her. I can picture her well in her prim hat and costume, looking around for stockings. :mrgreen:

Excellent job, and I hope it's not the last time I hear you in a play. No errors at all, immediately PL ok. Just careful, at one point (0:30) you forgot to leave the 2 seconds of silence between quotes. It's ok, Todd will manage to copy them out as there is still a bit of silence, so no need to reupload for this time, especially because you don't have any other errors.

Thank you for the fast turn-around !

Sonia

Hi Sonia,
Thanks, I’m relieved. I’m missing our play-readings, so this is almost as good and great fun!
Just incidentally, for my corpse-role I did actually have to buy real stockings!!! :D I wore them again as an 80-year-old senile lady two weeks ago.
Best,
Ulrike

you're versatile, that's handy. Here you can also alternate between playing an old senile lady and a crazy teenager, and everything in between :lol: I'm sure you fit right in here.

Here is my Anthony Clibborn. Didn't care much for him at first, but as things carried on - I found myself sympathizing and almost caring for him at the end.

awww, yes I know what you mean in the end....he is so endearingly happy to find out he has a son. Although I'm not sure how happy MRS Clibborn will be when she finds this out :lol: Also I'm not so sure that Guy will accept this new father with open arms ;) As so often, it would be very interesting to read a sequel of this play.

In any case, you have played Clibborn to perfection. I really loved the character you gave him, flaws and all. He is a mixture between bumbling, yet strict person. Very interesting. And totally PL ok. Great job, Aaron. Thank you for taking part here. :9:

Hi -

In section 1, Act 2, is the part of Mrs. Megget still available? I'd like to read it, if so.

BABY: Oh, John, if he grows like Maggs!

JOHN: He's the most beautiful shop-walker that ever walked a shop.
Just call me "Fabio"... :lol:

Cheers,

P.S. It may not be neccessary, but it can't hurt to mention, that the Cornish surname "Dangar" is pronounced with a hard 'G'.

P.P.S. I just wanted to add... in order to time my reactions to the people I have dialogue with, I have listened to the various voice-parts that are available.

I’m curious... Denisette, from your recording plus your forum location, I would’ve sworn you were an Englishwoman living in Germany, but I’ve just noticed that your name is Ulrike.

If English is not your first language, that is one amazingly accomplished accent you have developed. :)
