Resonant, Refreshing, Intelligent, Clever

See it if you have an interest in neurodivergent or the LGBT spectrum. A powerful play that cleverly shows the world from another point of view.

Don't see it if you lack interest in the word around you!

Resonant, Must see, Intelligent, Great acting, Clever

See it if you have an open mind and want to dive deeper into an Autistic person's mind.

Don't see it if you just want to spend an evening without thinking. This is a play that will make you ponder long after the show is finished.

"An objectively and hugely important piece of theatre and one that is long overdue... The play's narrative gives unparalleled agency to its autistic protagonist, and its message light-footedly unpicks stigmas and untruths about autism. Furthermore, all of it is the work of a largely neurodivergent cast and creative team, one that has been given the opportunity to share this story with complete authenticity."

"It is Boy’s relationship with his stressed and strained Mother that grounds the play, with Caroline Deverill’s heartfelt performance enlivening everything with a generous intimacy."

Based on real events, A-Typical Rainbow is told predominantly through the character of Boy as we see the world through his eyes. Having to navigate growing up autistic and gay in a world which can be cruel, this play hopes to challenge attitudes and increase the understanding of what it is like to be in the shoes of somebody such as Boy.
