Mixed reception for Golf Opera

It has to be said that the reception for the Riddled Operatic Society production of "The Whole In Onne" is not quite what we had expected.
We are not sure what is the exact problem with the production. It may be the Jacobean jokes "Your ball is too big for my hole, Sir Lancelot" or the political comments which were pertinent at the time "Your honour has the consistency of a Widdicombe apple".
Some of the songs are a tad obtuse as well "The Hevring of the Good Knight" "The Legfine Soldier" and "Bonwangers Away!" .
Suffice it to say that I was never in favour of the production and voted for "Carry On Health and Safety Inspector". Critics have not been helpful, saying that "two chaps hacking each others balls about on stage is not what I call Opera". Philistines
Why I had to wear spurs is beyond me, as well.

I still think we will break even once sales of the Michael Nyman soundtrack are factored in.

But but I thought The Riddled Band were performing the soundtrack...that's what the grant application said.

musin, yeah yeah.

Yes, but that was the grant application for the Film Commission. The one where we explained our plan to make a movie that no-one would want to watch, in order to keep the film crews employed and retain NZ's basic core of expertise in making movies that no-one wants to watch.

Oh I see what you done there. I thought we agreed you would split the grant money 50/50 with the Riddled Band though? We rehearsed the song that no one wanted to her sung remember?

hostrum, yeah well.
