Remarks for Act 4:
around 33:36 I added my voice for those lines, I think they are Ann's; it makes more sense. What do you think?
Act 4 is PL OK! :thumbs:
The lines at 33.36 are obviously for Ann and they sounded fine.
Excellent editing of a difficult Act which had so many characters in it, Well Done!

I think.it remarkable that they would build a totally different set just for the last 10 minutes of the play. I suppose they felt the need to emphasise the change of living environment that Ann has to face.

Thank you, Alan! :9:


PS. Just to add, the editing was indeed a painstaking task but the excellent result must be attributed to the outstanding performances of the readers :D :clap: :clap:

Remarks for Act 2:
around 3:40 Jim's voice for George's line
around 8:44 Ann's line is half missing. I tried my voice but did not really like it, and as it doesn't affect the dialogue, unlike George's line above, I thought it could stay as is. What do you say?
Hi
I have listened to act 2 and it sounds OK!
I did notice the missing words of Ann but, as you say, it does not affect the play. The line of George using Jim's voice I did not even notice. There are a few other minor misreads but nothing significant so I think this can be catalogued.

Thank you again for finishing this, I am sure all those of us who read roles will be grateful and pleased to see this catalogued :thumbs:

Hi
It is a very minor point but there is a typo in the summary. In the phrase The play has uses symbolism I think the word has is not needed.

Well it is catalogued - and I've used the wording that was in the database which isn't the wording in the first post. It can be changed later but I'll need to know what to put.

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-marrying-of-ann-leete-by-harley-granville-barker/ [/b
Thank you all for your contributions.

The files don't play for me, and the archive page is not available. I'll wait for you before I look into it further. Maybe there's an explanation. Thanks!

Regarding the summary, it looks like Tchaikovsky changed it in the meantime. I think the updated one is more accurate. I made two changes (added a comma and removed the extraneous word Alan pointed out), here it is:

A comedy with a serious vein running through it about the Leete family who are British rural gentry in 1799. Mr Carnaby Leete is a politician whose career is in trouble. He needs to save his position by marrying his youngest daughter, Ann, advantageously. His only son has married beneath him, and his older daughter's politically brilliant marriage is now in serious trouble. The play uses symbolism to give weight to the comedy and poses questions about the wisdom of marrying of a daughter solely for political gain. (Summary by Tchaikovsky)

Anne messaged me; there was an issue with the file links. Thankfully only four file links to fix! :mrgreen: Hopefully all is well now! I've also updated the summary in the catalogue and archive page.
