Entertaining, Funny, Must see, Profound, Delightful

See it if you enjoy compelling storytelling, beautiful, raw, emotional writing.

Don't see it if you cry easily or dislike solo performances.

"A fresh and eye-opening look at what it’s like to raise an autistic child…Oliver has keen insights into the ever-opinionated world around her, and paints a painful yet beautiful picture of the challenges that she and her son face daily...She radiates bravery and compassion, both as a performer and as a mother. I would happily have stayed beyond the one-hour running time to learn more about how she and her inexplicably special Xavier experience the world."

"Oliver is an energetic and captivating performer who truly puts her heart into her performance, showing skill in both her movement and her delivery. Her vivaciousness is contagious, and one cannot help but root for her and her story of determination....While one might expect a story about motherhood and the challenges of autism to be overly sentimental and preachy, this production is rather an honest, heartfelt tale about family, love, and motherhood that anyone might relate to."
