IN THE MANSION OF ARTS AND LETTERS, WE LIVE LIKE CHILDREN

Monday, June 7, 2010

Theatre is not a grown-up activity. People who work in theatre and put on plays are playing. I was first in a play, at school, when I was nine, and I was most recently in a play, in London, a few weeks ago. It was just the same. A banker puts on a costume and pretends to be an adult. I don’t.
