WHAT I (DON’T) KNOW ABOUT AUTISM
A Jody O’Neill and Abbey Theatre co-production, in association with The Everyman and Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre
Sandra is looking for love. Gordon is seeking acceptance. Simon just needs these parents to be quiet 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 is a sometimes comic, sometimes heart-breaking look at the world of autism. It uses narrative, song and dance in an exploration of this contentious and often misunderstood subject matter.
Inspired by the writer’s own experience with autism and performed by a cast of autistic and non-autistic actors, the play celebrates autistic identity whilst offering deeper insight and understanding to non-autistic audiences.
