Welcome to the Neurospace

22 - 26 February
7:00pm £15 / £10

The newly-formed neurodivergent collective Neurospace Theatre has been in residence at the BC this December and January.

Building on the well-received work of the Stealth Aspies theatre company (2017-2019) and moving on from references to Hans Asperger, The NeuroSpace Theatre now presents a whole new production: "Welcome to the Neurospace!"

Join us for a showcase of autistic artists presenting their own speeches, poetry, comedy and playwriting that explore what it means to be on the spectrum and live an autistic life in a neurotypical world.

Who are we and can we be accepted by society?  We are the future.  Please listen to us.


The running order of the night:

1. 'An introduction to the show, the collective and my life' - a speech by Paul Wady

2. 'The Reason I Jump' - a poem by Haroon Khan

3. 'M. E. Trout' - an excerpt of the play by Bethany Henry Gemmell

4. 'Confessions' - a poem by Haroon Khan

5. 'Keepsakes' - a short play by Jake Hart

6. 'Builder's Brew' - a poem by Haroon Khan

7. 'A Journey Through a Literal Mind' - a comedy set by Pagane Gacheva


The show runs for 75 minutes, plus a 15 minutes interval.
