oh and while looking through the text to find lines for the old woman, I also stumbled over a third woman, and two men who have a short speech on page 206 :? I'll put those characters in the MW as well... or maybe that's what you meant by First and Second Villager :hmm: I guess they can be doubled by some readers though. Basically they are only some female or male people in the crowd.

So do you wish for me to read those as well?

Good morning,
Here are two files that I have claimed.
April
8-) wonderful, April, you play the part of a gossipy biddy quite well :thumbs: especially in the second act you are really getting into to game when you are cheated out of a hanging (how macabre :shock: )

Act 2 is already PL ok, even though your voice credit is not the correct one, you are "An old Woman", not "Another old Woman", this part is read by another reader. But that's ok, Todd can simply ignore this voice credit, since there will be the correct one in the first act. No need to reupload.

for Act 1, I have some PL notes though:

> at 0:01: for the voice credit, could you please say it like it was in the MW ? "An old Woman, read by April..."

> at about 0:08: you missed some lines for "an old woman" which you also have to read:

on p. 171:
> "Is it said what the miracle will be ?"
> "God's mercy !"
> "That I should live to see this day !"

on p. 172:
> "What ? Whimp ?"

thank you

Sonia

Hello again Sonia,
Above is the new file with the edits you had mentioned and thank you for pointing out the items that I needed to fix.
Seriously, I do appreciate your assistance with this.

no no, that won't work, as they are talking among themselves, you cannot be two persons so close together. ;)

I'll check your other file tomorrow, thanks for the quick edits !

thanks April, the missing lines are all in now. I love your incredulous "What ? Whimp ?" :thumbs:

Still...the voice credit needs to be corrected too:

> you said "Another old Woman", but that is another reader. Yours should be "An old Woman"

The rest is fine !

Hello Sonia,
I actually had the correct mp3 though evidently I was a touch confused and posted the one with the incorrect voice credit, so this one is the correct one.

I would enjoy laying claim to the role of the Surgeon, if I may?

I could do the Girl in the first act and the voice in the crowd in the second act if you like.
Cheers,
Ava.

May I claim Another Old Woman?
Am I correct in my understanding that after her first appearance as "Another", she's referred to as "Second" as well?

thank you Foon and yes that is correct. In the discussion that follows, she is referred to as Second Woman. Also a bit later if I'm not mistaken. So please read both "Another" and "Second" (and also the "ALL" line later on).

I also noted down a third woman in the MW in Act 2, who is also called "and another" I think. But you'll find out that should be someone else speaking. I noted that sentence in the MW, so you see which one I mean.

Here are the few lines for Another Old Woman:

I found only one All line, "Hooray!" in Act 2 - is that correct?
