What I (Don’t) Know About Autism

This event has ended

Abbey Theatre, Saturday 1st February - Saturday 8th February

What I (Don't) Know About Autism – A sometimes comic, sometimes heart-breaking journey into the world of autism, performed by autistic and non-autistic actors.

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. 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.
