What I (Don’t) Know About Autism

Abbey Theatre, Tuesday 26th October - Saturday 6th November

Sandra is looking for love. Gordon is seeking acceptance. Simon just wants these parents to stop talking for two minutes so he can get on with teaching their kids.

And Casper?
Casper is not here.

What I (Don’t) Know About Autism takes the audience on a highly theatrical journey. Performed by a cast of autistic and non-autistic actors, it is a sometimes comic, sometimes heartbreaking look at the world of autism. The play mixes narrative, song, dance and direct address to explore this contentious and often misunderstood subject matter.

Inspired by the writer’s own experiences with autism, the play celebrates autistic identity whilst offering deeper insight and understanding to non-autistic audiences.

All performances will be relaxed performances. This means there will be a relaxed approach to noise during the show and audience members are free to move about or leave the auditorium as they need. Each performance will be followed by a post-show talkback.

As well as live performances, What I (Don’t) Know About Autism will also be available to watch as a live-stream and on-demand. Irish Sign Language, British Sign Language, American Sign Language, Captioned and Audio-Described performances will be available on-demand.

Utopia

National Concert Hall

In the uncharted territories ahead: What do you want? What happens next? We’ve navigated through the global crisis, and now we find ourselves among inadequate social structures, claustrophobic ways of life, and burned out rhythms. We also find people asking questions about how to embrace uncertainty and the unknown, to sort out the trajectories of their lives without knowing where the world is going. The only map we have for this new territory is what we want. The only option is utopia. Presented by Una Mullally and Conner Habib, in collaboration with the National Concert Hall and multipl
