There are thirty-two shares in Shakespeare In Italy The Movie left. Each costs a thousand dollars, and gets you one percent of the money the movie makes once forty-two thousand dollars has been recovered from the theatre box office or from sales to television, DVDs, film festivals or cinemas. If the film makes a million dollars you get ten thousand; if twenty million, and this is quite likely, two hundred thousand. My partner Wayne Anthoney, a respected septuagenarian actor-manager of small fringe events, will collect what money comes in and send it out.
Since I began writing this, two shares were sold, to Patric Juillet, of Galway, and Luke Walladge, of Perth.
