thank you, Beth, excellent performance of the young girl in love and slowly fading away. You captured the up-and-down emotions very well, and your "breezy" way of speaking is perfect for this performance. :thumbs:

In the third act she is definitely showing grandeur when she realized her error. Loved this part very much.

Acts 2 and 4 are already PL ok.

I have only one small note for Act 1:

> at about 6:57: (p. 59) missed line: "Oh !"

As to the letter in Act 3: according to the stage directions for this scene, the letter is definitely read out loud by Galahad, and Adrian also recorded it, so I think we will take his version after all. (sorry about the trouble) Also, it would sound a bit odd to hear Sybil's voice all of a sudden, since on stage that is usually not done this way either. It's more realistic this way. But no need to cut it out, as the rest of the act was perfectly fine. :)

Thanks, great performance. Quite a tragic ending.

and here is the rest of Em...wow I will never ever do such a difficult accent again, it was quite tiring during a 13 minute performance in act 3 :shock: didn't expect her to say that much. To think I wanted to go for a more minor role this time....I guess I was mistaken. :lol:

In any case, Em is cool, she's the friend in need a man would want when he has to hide from the cops. She will defend him against the world...but can the world defend him against her ? :mrgreen: That's another matter.

George Tidd goes Australia ! (for anyone who doesn't get the joke, I recommend listening to Dandy Dick)

And here's your romantic daughter, Kathie:

Kathie will be a handful in the third act...and no matter how much you cry, I won't let you meet Horace :lol:

beautifully played, TJ. Kathie sounds like a young smitten girl, still very coy about it. But I suspect she will change that soon :mrgreen:

Absolutely PL ok. Thank you. Looking forward to the next act.

have a nice weekend :)

Doctor act 1

https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/galahadjones_doctor_1.mp3

I did not attempt an Australian accent as I thought it might draw scorn from the real Aussies among us. I will have to be a Pommie immigrant doctor.

Thank you. Of course, after their deportation, your parents now in Australia probably brought you up with the voice of the home county to remind them of their youth....

Thanks, Todd

ooooh now that was nasty, Todd :lol:

of course, Beth and Chris are the only natives here in this play, so the rest of us all got deported there which somehow explains our accents :lol:

@Alan: will PL tomorrow and looking forward to it. What's a Pommie ?

Interesting! Any idea what the word's origin is?

I love this performance. The doctor is so calm and composed, I have not often heard you in such a serious role, it's quite a difference to some of the buffo roles you already played, Alan. Really enjoyed it very much. :9:

Also: PL ok :)

Pommie sounds cute. :lol:

thank you

Hi Sonia

Although this is marked PL ok above it is marked "See PL notes" in MW.

Pommie: according to OED "pommie" is "derogatory" 👹

It is apparently supposed to be short for pomegranate, but what the relevance of that is I have no idea. :?:

sorry, my sliding finger slipped in the process, and I didn't notice. I will change it immediately.

maybe they had a notion that Brits who spend some time down under in the scorching sun end up looking rosy red like pomegranates :mrgreen: (just guessing)

All of Em is PL OK. Quite a role - from caring helpmate to vindictive shrew - sometimes in the same line! Nicely done.

Thanks, Todd
