Theater of Parsimony

There were few things that Jasfoup was inflexible about, but paying – actually handing out money kind of paying – for tickets for an amateur dramatics production of Macbeth was one of them.

“Why should I pay to see it?” he said. “I saw it when it was performed at the Globe in 1610. Bill gave me the tickets in exchange for Act II.”

“But your girlfriend is in it,” said Harold. “Julie’s playing the three witches. Well, her and her two glove puppets.

“There you are then,” said Jasfoup. “If Billy Shakespeare could get me a complimentary she certainly should have.”
