School play, Christmas 1978

Note my (literally) central role as third-piece-of-fence-from-left. This may seem like a cynical piece of casting by teachers too stingy to pay for actual scenery, but bear in mind that the leading characters were (as depicted) a snowman and a pillar-box. (None of this new-fangled Mary and Joseph stuff in those days). In fact the only animate object in the play appears to be the nurse - who seems to be encouraging children to drink bleach...


This was not my last appearance as an inanimate object. Some years later I was cast as a gold ring in The Twelve Days of Christmas...
