Harumph. I see you down there abusing that poor camel. How droll and dromedary of you. Camels ain't mules - you have to use Gee and Haw with them. Jeez, some people just don't know nuthin....

Your far-sighted (and long suffering) editor, Todd

(Oh, and Happy Turkey Day to those inclined to the Thanksgiving gobbles.)

Why, thank you.

(Feeling after yesterday's food as I do this morning, I am very glad that the overeating-with-family tradition stopped with the turkey and not something larger. Like a buffalo. Or elephant.)

Thanks, Todd

Well, this was a new characterization for me, and probably ended up as some kind of dialectical cross-breed, for which I apologize. I hope you enjoy it, though. I decided to go with the "Poyl" pronunciation, too, for my voice credit, but let me know if you'd rather have one that's more recognizable.

:lol: Chris is corrupting our accent slowly ! I will have a listen to this tomorrow, Devorah, but updating MW for the time being. I have a lot to edit for my own recordings and wanted to make a PL-free day to work off that pile today. But tomorrow, I'll check it out ! Looking forward to that.

thank you

It’s a great accent, and there are a couple-three of the Australian vowel sounds you have absolutely nailed.

Makes me sound like the phonetic equivalent of a madam of a house of ill-repute. :lol: The things the DR Forum gets up to in Todd’s absence.

Oh well, while the cat’s out of town, the mice get down.


Cheers,
Chris

"ah just won't I nark him the brute" :lol: priceless ! I looooved this character, you play her so down-right snarky (but in the end she is getting soft again for Cedric, tststs). I just noticed that in the three Adams plays you acted the part of the girl who is drooling over Chris' character. What a coincidence ! :mrgreen:

Absolutely PL ok. Great accent indeed !

:shock: How funny! I hadn't realized, but of course you're right! At first, I thought Pearl was a bit more of the "strong, independent woman" type, but yes, turns out she's rather weak-willed in that department. Poor thing.

I'm glad you liked it!

And thank you as well, Chris, for the compliment.

Perhaps for a change of pace in an Australian play, Devorah would like to play Marie Curie opposite young Tasmanian apple-farmer Albert Einstein? How's your French accent? :wink:

P.S. You wouldn't think that that spot, Observatory Hill, is only a cricket-ball's throw from the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the busiest part of Sydney, would you?

ok now I had a go at Em...and Todd, when you hear this, I am sure you will give a huge sigh of relief that you did NOT play Galahad this time :lol: Em is quite the dragon when she wants. Poor Galahad is too soft-spoken for her. It will make for an interesting contrast to Adrian's performance which I wanted to go for.

Now I know that I won't even reach any accurate level of Oz-accent, but this time I at least tried not to sound like a European immigrant :lol: Not sure whether I managed though, but I gave it my best. :mrgreen:

I just recorded all of Sibyl Beach when Audacity crashed! I've managed to save Act 4, the rest will come later today if I can resurrect them!

There's a few sighs to indicate swaying and dying - use or not as you like.

Acts 1 and 2 survived the crash, and since I recorded the letter from Sibyl in Act 3 you've got that as well if you want it.
