I'm an actor of 31 years working in the profession. Theatre educated and saved my life in terms of its life lessons from a very difficult time growing up to nowadays when it continues to entertain, educate and provide sustenance to me and millions of others. My local theatre Omnibus was started from the ashes of the recently closed library on Clapham Common. I saw a brilliant production of Woyzeck there last week. We need such education, entertainment and community to make life worth growing into. My theatre Matters.
