Gruyere by Andrew Verster

“MY HANDKERCHIEF HAS MORE HOLES THAN A GRUYERE CHEESE closed after two performances at The Loft after tepid reviews.
 “The critics didn’t exactly rave about  AS YOU LIKE IT if you remember.”
 “I wasn’t there, so I’ll have to take your word for it,” John  Mault, the co-author said. “Joanna Ezard, my other half, has booked a ticket to Tasmania, she is so mortified.”  
“She has family there?”
“No. But TOURS INC were offering half price tickets to the first twenty takers. 
“Where’s Tasmania? She asked the clerk.
“Give me half a minute and I’ll look it up if I can find my pocket atlas. It must be around. I had to find Zimbabwe just last week. But, for the life of me, I couldn’t find it. It’s up north somewhere. I think they must have cancelled it.”
“Thank you. You’ve been wonderful.”
“No, problem. Pleased I could help.”
