    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 Julia and John want is to live their lives with their two sons, on their own terms. But despite their hopes, the outside world and its racism puts paid to their plans.

    A world premiere of a new play from Rosaleen McDonagh, this tender, complex and beautiful love story examines how external circumstances pull us apart, when all we really want is to be together.
