    Question Is this gramaticaly ok?

    Hello everybody,

    i would like to know if "The director told the understudy to go on in her role". And if that sentence can (if not completley then at least by a small difference) replace "The director told the understudy to go on in her place"?

    Tnx in advance...

    I think the original means that the director wanted her to continue as the understudy, which the second doesn't, so I wouldn't rewite it that way. IThe original is grammatically OK, though the double preposition could be avoided by changing the verb to 'continue' or something, but it's not necessary.
