Here is the first Bacchis - couldn't let my sister wait for too long. ;-)

I just hope I found all her lines. That the publisher is saving space and prints 2 people in the same line is rather annoying... :roll:
yes indeed it is a bit confusing. I am having my eyes peeled so as not to miss anything. Well...it's a challenge :mrgreen:

And the first Bacchis is excellently played, you have a certain naughty undertone in your voice. :thumbs: We'll get those sheep fleeced. :lol:

I have only two small edits to add:

Act 1:
> at 2:09: (p. 154) "do you, I entreat you, be her protector" – you say "I entreat her"

Act 2:
> at 3:00 and at 3:27: (p. 208) "what pray if half the gold...." etc. You have this twice, could you cut out one of the versions ? Or did you want Todd to choose ?

thank you

Sonia

why are you up that early ? :shock:

I was browsing through the whole act, wondering when he would show up :lol: A nice end monologue, Alan. He seems like a likeable guy (he will be fleeced mercilessly by the twins in the end though, nevertheless. :mrgreen: )

Thank you, all PL ok

Pistoclerus, Act 3, duration 3:30

thank you, Mike, another totally PL ok performance. Poor Pistoclerus is held under suspicion. I am looking forward to hearing the entire intrigue in the correct sequence :lol:

Todd: I see in the MW that you want others to read the final speech (Company) as well. Is this now correct or do we still go with our initial idea of having the speech only done by the sisters ?

By the way, I don't believe Pistoclerus has any Act V lines, so my part in this project is done.
