Do they count as double entendres if the character and his reader are both just clueless?

Thanks, Todd
No, not a double entendre. More of a halfwitticism.

Cheers,
Chris

wohoooo, an excellent performance throughout all the acts, Chris. Now Maskwell is devious, especially in the final act. A pity he vanished all of a sudden :lol: he could have had a come-uppance in the final scene.

It was a big role and you played it wonderfully, thank you so much. So looking forward to hearing all this assembled.

All three acts PL ok.

Brisk, Act 1, duration 5:01

:lol: this guy loves to hear himself talk. You play the coxcomb very well, Mike :thumbs: it was highly entertaining to listen to this collection of silliness :mrgreen:

I have only one small question:

> at 1:23: "oh mon coeur" - this means "oh my heart" in French... I am not sure if you want pronunciation hints and usually it doesn't matter so much, but I want to warn you that the way you said this, what I hear is "oh mon cul", which is a very rough and rude expression, since it means "oh my arse" :lol: it's probably very fitting for a bawdy comedy and something Brisk might say, but I wanted to know whether that was really your intention

thanks

Sonia

I see that there is another witless ninny for me to play, to wit: Mellefont, promised to, and in love with Cynthia.
I volunteer.
