Then as the fates would have it, a high school drama teacher forced Robert to play Barnaby Tucker in Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker in the schools lunchbox theatre. Terrified for his life, Robert took to the stage on the opening day, barely able to breathe. When the ordeal was over he asked the director "What were they laughing at?" Dumbfounded, the director replied, "You, you idiot, it was hilarious!"
