yes you were :thumbs: the voice sounds a little bit deeper in the second act, but what's more important, you speak more composedly, quieter and that gives you an older air compared to the more sprightly, uncaring, slightly petulant voice in the first act. It's excellently done. I'm happy we have two such great voice talents to carry the bulk of the dialogue in this play. :9:

Act 2 is already PL ok.

One small note for act 1 though:

> at 6:26: (p. 94) missed line: "I must interrupt you for a moment, Wilcox."

thank you so much !

Sonia
Oh I'm glad to hear that! Thank you :9:

Here is the missing line (though I cannot figure out why I missed it since it is attached to another line :lol:):

And just a fun tidbit for everyone, I am DPLing a book about the theater and in Chapter 1 Sweethearts is mentioned. I thought it was neat.

yes the strangest things happen sometimes. That's why a DPL is so important :mrgreen:

It's all PL ok now ! Thanks

so cool ! yes I love it when I hear about the books I am involved with in other areas as well. Sometimes I have the strangest knowledge about old and mouldy PD books nowadays, just because of LV :lol: People look at me funnily when I come up with references nobody knows anymore.

Got confused with the Ruth you are in Sweet Lavender. But find you again at last. PL OK!

(Shame Wilcox and Ruth didn't get to interact.)

Thanks, Todd

they are some twenty years apart I'm afraid. Unless Wilcox finds a time-travelling machine ;)

I am not sure whether Wilcox purposefully tries to egg Jenny on to refuse the suitors... he doesn't strike me too sympathetic to the cause of love :lol: But excellently done, Todd, and all PL ok.

thank you. Wow now only the stage directions missing and then this play is done already. That was ultra fast :shock:

Huh, I go away for a few days and when I get back I find you've all finished your parts really fast and are sitting there waiting for me to catch up. :wink:

wohooo, thank you Michael, and both acts are perfectly narrated and PL ok. Yes it's unusual that the stage directions are the last to come in, but it has happened on occasions. And here we only had a handful of roles anyway. But perfect, now Todd can finalize this little gem.

Thank you so much. And I hope your little trip was refreshing

What a sad tale, or at least bittersweet. Not sure I like an age I can not remember from my past being being portrayed as old and dottering enough that the guy can't even keep his supposed sweetheart's name straight throughout act 2!

But my only complaint is with Mr. Gilbert. For it is wonderfully performed by you all. Thanks!

All ready for final PL.

Thanks, Todd

yes a wonderfully sad story, but there is hope in the end. Maybe they'll spend the evening of their life together, why not ? Of course if they had made up their minds years ago, the house would now belong to them and not Mr Baybrooke :lol:

Excellently performed and assembled. :clap: All PL ok and ready for the catalogue ! Yay

Thank you all
