The power of neuro-diversity, Fully committed cast of talented performers, Humorous and endearing, Thought-provoking

See it if Have interest in technology, neuro-diversity, disability, democracy, and an Australian acting troupe that also developed the piece.

Don't see it if Have a narrow sense of what performance can be.

Relevant, Intense, Great writing, Intelligent, Ambitious

See it if To take in a thoughtful, challenging, lively work written and performed by mentally disabled writer/actors who provoke and challenge.

Don't see it if You’re looking for traditional narrative. This is structured but experimental work that values ideas over plot. Read more

"The long arty title and the vague, grand description are misleading. 'The Shadow etc.' has a straightforward subject and a clear point of view: 'We are a group of people with disabilities, fighting oppression and injustice,' says one of the four performers."
