We knew it was coming We felt it draw near The loss of our safe world Of drama, of cheer. Our escape is a blessing From all that is real, Behind safety curtains We feel what we feel ! We tried to hold tightly To our weekly retreat To the worlds we create In our minds, voices and feet! This poison is strong tho! the apple’s been bitten. And it’s retelling our story From the one that’s been written. It’s emptied our stages Turned dressing rooms bare, Silenced our pits, Blinded audience stares! Our hearts may be broken, but this storm we will weather. In self isolation ! But our spirits together. COVID-19 let us tell you a thing Not one Theatre Baddie Have we ever let win!
