Venue: The Marlborough Theatre, 4 Princes Street, Brighton, BN2 1RD

The Stealth Aspies are Britain’s first entirely autistic theatre company. Intimate and enlightening, their show explores autism in a light-hearted and truthful way, combining verbatim testimonies with original poetry, from those diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome (aspies) and autism in later life.

You are invited to share a glimpse of real autistic subculture, starkly contrasting its media representation, presented through the lens of adults who live the autism experience every day. With words from a variety of diagnosed autistic adults taken directly from their real-life experiences, including the Stealth Aspies themselves and others.

‘The sense of community in the room is unmistakable – slang and inside jokes explode in a collective glee, and empathy buzzes in the air. Here no one need be anything other than themselves.’ ★★★★ A Younger Theatre

‘Recommended for anyone wanting to have a truer, more rounded appreciation of the nuances of the Autistic Spectrum.’ Disability Arts Online.
