I am reminded at this juncture of a passage from Tom Stoppard's
excellent "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead", specifically the
scene where Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have stumbled upon The
Players -- a group of travelling actors/prostitutes -- on their way to
GUIDENSTERN: Do you know any good plays?
GUIDENSTERN: I thought you were actors.
PLAYERS: Oh. Oh, well, we are. But there hasn't been much call --
GUILDENSTERN: Well, then. One of the Greeks, perhaps? You're
familiar with the tragedies of antiquity, are you? The great
homicidal classics? Matri, patri, fratri, sorori, uxori, and it goes
without saying --
ROSENCRANTZ: -- saucy --
GUIDENSTERN: Suicidal? Maidens aspiring to Godheads, or vice versa?
That's your kind of thing, is it?
PLAYER: Well no, I can't say it is, really. We're more of the blood,
love, and rhetoric school.
GUILDENSTERN: Well I'll leave the choice to you, if there is anything
to choose between them.
PLAYER: They're hardly divisible, sir! Now, I can do you blood and
love without the rhetoric, and I can do you blood and rhetoric without
the love, and I can do you all three, concurrent or consecutive. But
I can't do you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is
compulsory -- they're all blood, you see.
GUIDENSTERN: Is that what people *want*?
PLAYER: It's what we do.
Well, this is what I do:
