LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!
One Dad wrestles with autism.
Danson Thunderbolt is no ordinary Dad, and his teenage son Luke is not so ordinary either. For Luke is autistic and the Autistic Shadow gets between them every single day, making communication and their relationship a struggle. So what’s a Dad to do?
Join us in a real wrestling ring as The Thunderbolt battles The Shadow in a fight to the finish as he tries to maintain contact with Luke whilst the Ref tries to keep control. Funny, poignant and real, the play is adapted from the blog Living with Luke, and fuses wrestling and theatre to show what life is like living with an autistic child.
Following sell out performances in Colchester, Harlow and around the country the ‘part wrestling match, part play’ is not to be missed!
Suitable for 14+, though containing some strong language –and wrestling!
