:lol: the way you say "Couplets !" is priceless. I think by then even Lord Froth may start suspecting something. Excellent fun, Alan, thank you. This is again PL ok.

See you in the next one !

I found only a couple of lines for him in Act I
And, I noticed a few slips in Act V, but I don't think they're too bad.

I don't know why I seem to have more reverb than I would expect in this recording.....

it didn't strike me too echoey :hmm: the sound is ok as far as I'm concerned.

Brilliant performance too, Larry :clap: and yet another cheated husband, it seems to me back then men could only be in one category, either the cheater or the cheated :lol: your Lord Touchwood is still very composed throughout the play, he probably wants to take care of a weak heart or something :mrgreen: highly enjoyable, thanks !

Acts 1, 3 and 4 are straight PL ok.

For Act 5 you managed to miss the final lines of the Act :wink:

> at 7:22: please add:

"Let secret villany from hence be warned;
Howe’er in private mischiefs are conceived,
Torture and shame attend their open birth;
Like vipers in the womb, base treachery lies,
Still gnawing that, whence first it did arise;
No sooner born, but the vile parent dies."

thanks

Thanks for your kind review, Sonia!

How I missed that, I don't know.
I guess I was thrown off by the space, there, but there it is as clear as can be.
The tone doesn't match too well, bur I recorded that whole segment so it won't be quite as noticeable, I hope.

Maskwell, Act 1 completed: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/doubledealer_maskwell_1_128kb.mp3
aha, I was waiting for this part :mrgreen: Now Maskwell sounds shifty from the first. :lol: well done Chris. I think the dialogues with Lady Touchwood will come out quite interesting. All the parts are in as far as I can see, only one small note:

> for the voice credit, you forgot to say "read by SotE". But you can add that to the next act, and I can mark this one as PL ok. I'll make a note for Todd in the MW.

Thank you so much, and looking forward to the next act

thank you Larry, perfectly added and I don't think the tone was off too much. It sounds good to me and is PL ok now. :clap:

The plot's gravitas, like gravy, thickens.

:oops: Um, yes, and yes.

I actually recorded Act 2, and then thought about quitting to go take a nap. But I decided to press on. Apparently, I really needed the nap! :lol:
