A Thespian Career?


My thespian career began and ended with me playing the part of the Dormouse in Alice in Wonderland. I was eight or nine, I think. 

Lines filled with deep meaning, philosophy and social comment such as--
"Twinkle twinkle, little bat,
How I wonder what you're at? 
Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea tray in the sky
-- are etched forever in my mind. 

Alas, how could I surpass such a seminal part? Thus, I withdrew from a promising acting career for fear of being typecast.
