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
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.
