THE THESPIAN

I remember when I first learnt the word ‘ Thespian ‘; I was about 15 or 16 and it was a cool ‘big’ word to add to my vocabulary.  Quite a few years on, I have a much deeper appreciation of the word and the persons it describes.

Here’s the definition:

Thespian /ˈθɛspɪən/

Adjective: relating to drama and the theatre 

Noun: an actor or actress

(source: Google)

In this poem – titled ‘The Thespian’ – I have used the word loosely  to extend to thespians who engage other forms of arts like dancing. I wrote this some time ago, as I watched a private screening of  ‘Heartbeat,  The Musical’ produced by Lufodo Productions Ltd (Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs’ theatre company) but since it was recently World Theatre Day, I thought it would be a good time to share this poem with you.
