Colpoys acts 2 & 3
great job again, Alan. Colpoys doesn't seem to be much of a gentleman :lol:

I did find two missing lines here though (sorry, the script is a bit confusing):

for Act 2:

> at about 0:04:

Colpoys. [Behind Rose, imitating Gadd.] Child, I confess I adore you.

*****

for Act 3:

> at about 0:17:

[Tom admits Colpoys, who carries a mean-looking "part," and a letter.]
Colpoys: [After formally bowing to the ladies.] Oh, Gadd, Mr. Burroughs instructs me to offer you this part in the pantomime. [Handing the part to Gadd.] Demon of Discontent.

Gutenberg missed to include the name Colpoys here, but I checked with the original in archive:

Thanks Sonia

I admire your thoroughness in checking the Archive text. I will do the corrections next weekend.

the part struck me as strange, Gadd seemingly speaking to himself :hmm: that's why I checked. I'll keep archive open for more such blunders in Gutenberg. :?

I've had a crack at James Telfer

Duration: 6:54

NB: There's a bit where Telfer refers to "Mr. Glower" - this is probably a typo, but it might just be Pinero's idea of a joke, so I've left it as shown in the online text, but also put in a "Mr. Gower" next to it so whoever's stitching it together can choose!

aha, thank you, Patrick, enthusiasm is always a good thing :lol: and since the role has not yet been claimed by anyone else, I can sign you up for this part.

However, it would be better to claim BEFORE recording anything. Sometimes the MW is not totally up-to-date and if someone had put in a previous claim, I could not have used your lines and the work would have been done in vain. :(

Always better make sure you claim beforehand, it saves us all unnecessary work and disappointment. ;)

For now I'll update the MW and will PL the files tomorrow morning.

I'll check with the original and let Todd know. Thanks for mentioning it !

I checked with the original scan and indeed it is Gower, so there was a typo. Todd will paste in the correct line, thanks for recording two versions. :thumbs:

And your Telfer is absolutely wonderfully acted out, so in character of the "out-of-date actor" :lol: That was a mean sentence in the play, I can imagine that Telfer was seriously miffed at that. :mrgreen: Oh but you made the toasts drag on and on and on... :lol: they probably wanted to get back at you for that.

So no missing lines as far as I can see and all perfectly acted, this is absolutely PL ok. There's only one tiny note I'd like to make:

> at 4:47: between “A good girl——“ and “She is a good girl,” there is Mrs Telfer’s speech in between but you did not leave much editing space for Todd. But as you have no other errors, I think for this time Todd will manage to fiddle with the bits. No need to re-upload.

Thank you so much and I hope I hear you in some other plays soon. :9:

Note for Todd: the voice credit has been added to the 4th act and is missing in the first.
