There is only one tiny thing you can cut out:

> at 5:51 and at 5:57: “our faculty bids me...” (p. 163): we only need it once here, maybe there was one you wanted to delete ? :hmm: I did check the whole part twice, because he so often says almost the same things here, and I wanted to make doubly sure, but I really think one of these lines is too much, if I'm not mistaken.
....
Sonia -

Those lines were remarkably similar. :hmm: One has now been deleted.

Todd -

I was debating between Syndic and Bombastes, but I guess that's been settled. May I have sections 13 and 14 (Syndic)?
I was debating between Bombastes and his assistant, Jules -- there are so many fun parts in this play... I wouldn't mind switching, but I see you're already full into the Syndic role, which you do fantastically, I might add. :clap:

"Modesty is my grievous fault" :lol: I had to snigger at that comment. He probably really believes that :mrgreen:

Excellent job again, Phil. You play the slimy politician absolutely wonderfully. :9: And nothing is missing this time as far as I can see, so this is totally PL ok.

You're our first character to be completed. Thanks !

Yank act 2. I have included the song lines on pages 200 and 202 as the preceding stage directions imply that these lines should be sung by Yank.

excellent, Alan. I love the song :9: it's so macabre, yet entertaining. Somehow gives the hangman a chilling touch. I suppose, since Todd has not made any written prohibition of DO NOT SING in the MW, this play will feature the songs. Which is probably important for the final scene where the ballad monger has to sing for his life.

I love the whole performance. Could I only trouble you with one more line please ? Maybe you could join the crowd cheering on the new mayor in the end, so we have a big crowd whooping. Just paste it right at the end of your file:

> p. 212: All: "Hooray !"

thank you so much. The role was really fitting to your voice. You made a great choice here.

Hooray - as requested!

oh you gave us even two for good measure :mrgreen: thank you, Alan, I'm sure you'll sound great in the crowd. It's a bit exceeding volume, but Todd will surely equalize this superbly.

PL ok. I'll create a new section for you in the MW.

Whimp acts 1 and 2 ready for PL:

Sonia/Todd .....

In act 2, at a time stamp starting at 1:22, I recorded a line twice. It is at the bottom of page 182 and Whimp is talking to Blat. The text reads as follows:

Whimp: I dreamed last night that four gibbets
were set up, and that me and Twist and you and
Whimp did hang upon them.

This did not make sense to me as if Whimp is speaking, he would not say his own name in describing his dream. I think this may be a typo?. I think instead it should be:

Whimp: I dreamed last night that four gibbets
were set up, and that me and Twist and you and
Squeak did hang upon them.

You can use whichever you think best and just cut the other one!

Thank you both. I'll likely go with the correction to the Whimp line - good catch.

Thanks, Todd
