Cast announced for Alphabetti Theatre's Tiny Fragments of Beautiful Light
Tiny Fragments of Beautiful Light
Newcastle Alphabetti Theatre
Tuesday 31 January – Saturday 18 February 2023
Tiny Fragments of Beautiful Light at Alphabetti Theatre is an immersive, interactive exploration of one woman’s journey of self-discovery. From 31st January – 18th February, this funny, joyful play is a celebration of our individuality and the joy and freedom that comes when we live as we truly are, and not as the world thinks we should.
The show explores the autistic experience through a female lens, inspired by writer Allison Davies’ own diagnosis of autism. More men and boys are diagnosed as autistic than women and girls, so Davies felt it was time that space was made to hear from different voices. Attitudes towards autism and gender are changing, although there is still a long way to go, as many autistic women and girls struggle to get the support they need. Historically, far more attention has been given to males on the spectrum, and as a neurodivergent woman this show is Davies’s response.
