Thanks for the compliment I was concerned I might be overdoing it for Audio...I saw the NT live version of the play in a theater a few years ago it was very over-the-top. I'm glad someone decided to take it on and thrilled to be a part of it.

Personally, I think that for audio you need to overact a little. The listener can't see your face or gestures and has to imagine what you might look like in a costume. You need to put a lot of emotion into your voice to help them picture your characters.

I have somehow managed to never see a staged version of this play. I think the script is so bitingly funny, though! Now that I've read the part of Lady Gay, I'd love to play her onstage. I may lobby my local community theater to add this one to their roster when they get back up and running.

Thanks for contributing! Be sure to look at the other play that I am the BC for -- "Lady of Lyons." There are several male roles still open there that could benefit from your rich and resonant tones!

Hello Andrew,
For Meddle, Act 2, please check between 10:00 and 10:06 for the insertion of a few missing lines: "Visible! Ever since...dinner."

Thanks,
Lora

I may have misunderstood your note, but the line you mentioned looks to be one of Max's, rather than Meddle's - though I'm happy to edit it in if you feel like that's a typo in the script? Let me know :)

Hello!

Many apologies for the delay but work has been more than eventful of late. :D

Anyway -- had some time and got Act 3 done:

Hooray! Actually, this is perfect timing -- I just started editing together Act III earlier this week. I can't wait to hear how Grace and Charles' awkward love scene near the end of the act sounds!

Hi Andrew,
You are completely correct; my apologies. :oops: I'm still getting used to listening/following along for dramatic pieces. Act 2 is PL Okay.

Thanks,
Lora

I'm sorry I didn't catch this sooner, but James has one line in Act 3 on page 35. Would you be so kind as to give us your reading of it?
