The Curious Incident of recognising your symptoms on stage
The play is quite wonderful. With its stripped back design it's an unusual set but one you soon get used to. The autism is expertly played and I empathised when I recognised some of my own behaviour pattern up there on the stage. As the lead character Christopher takes the train then the London Underground, I couldn't watch. I felt his pain. I've been there, done that, had a bad experience and got myself in a right state too.
If you go to see this on stage, stay right to the end. I don't mean to the end of the show, I mean, stay sitting in your seat as other people are putting on their coats and walking out. You'll be rewarded, I assure you.
