Personally, I have no objections to a read through. You've just got 4 others to convince now.

Ok so who else is willing to spare an hour on Friday afternoon so we can give the audience a better show, or at the very least help reduce the collateral damage I'll inflict on your performance? ;^)

You know Dave. I'm mucho interested in what you're going to do with the four characters you've got to play.

Isn't torture fun?

The four parts things is fine and could be quite a laugh.
Like the traditional anxiety dream; It's going in cold, without any feedback or feel for the other performances, that scares me ;)

If you want feedback Dave. Here's mine. However. I should remind everyone that the parts were written for specific people.

Baron Sin (Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity). Brilliant. You delivered exactly what I had in mind (A melodramatic desspot).
Cretin the Butler (Space:1889). Excellent. Haughly. Aloof and somewhat detached.
Inspector Beatle (Murder Most Horrid). Hmmmmm. A bit wide of the mark. Instead of Lestrade. We got a shopkeeper with a speech impediment.

Just think of Captain Tornado as my revenge!

You're a bit harder to give feedback for. I've known Dave for years, so I knew what he could deliver. You were a bit of a leap in the dark. When I wrote Cretin, I based the character on John LeMesurier (He played a Butler in The Avengers). Dave played the character exactly how I had invisiged it. Aloof and remote.

You certainly got the direction I was going with the character. With Space:1889. Cretin was a faithful servent of Lady Divina Minor-Shithouse who was the brains of the outfit. With Murder Most Horrid. Lady Agatha De'Ath was a total idiot and Cretin was the brains, but (being a Butler) wasn't allowed to admit it. You nailed that one!

Professor Frink is a blank canvass. The whole piece was written for Gary (It's a re-boot of his original Captain Tornado Play from Armadacon VII)*. All that i ask is: Don't do Professor Frink from The Simpsons. I pinched that name, as it was the first name that popped into my head.

* Yes, Gary was the first person cast. Then Chris Trace as Whirlwind. Then I had this idea about torturing Dave.

Just to let eveyone know. I've printed out the scripts and highlighted the relevant lines. I will be taking a highlighter pen just in case I've missed a line.

So the proffessor is a blank canvass.
Time to find that old tweed jacket with elbow patches.
