FIVE STAR ***** REVIEW ON BRIGHTON FRINGE. FOUR **** STAR REVIEW IN EDINBURGH LAST YEAR. The worlds only 100% autistic theatre company returns for a 13 day run of a genre that for some, is not supposed to exist.

The true voices of autistic people ‘in the closet’ and late diagnosis. People who have spent their lives out and surviving in a world meant for a different human species. Funny, moving and unique to the Stealth Aspies.

We are a genre of Neurodiverse Self Advocacy that is neither disability nor mental illness. Although those things can affect many of our lives, this show allows a race and a kind of humanity previously without identity save being eccentrics, outsiders and ‘dysfunctional’ to speak. Will you listen?

Sarah Saeed, Alain English, Janine Booth and Paul Wady. Actors, mothers, poets, writers, married (to another autistic person), trade unionists and one of us the Labour parties Neurodiversity manifesto co author and sole originator. Some young and old. We are the spectrum.

Experience something conventional media and theatre venues do not seem to be able to conceive of or go near. Most critics see us and don’t write. They have no idea how to relate to us. Will you? Poetry, humour, true life in the raw for autistic adults.
