Description

A whimsical, musical exploration of social versus personal identity from the perspective of a late-identified and diagnosed non-binary autistic person. Baby Belle takes the audience on an all-singing journey of self-discovery, reflecting on past and present experience of the shifting expectations of a cis-hetero-normative, neurotypical world. Also there's a song about cats. 'Funny and moving exploration of intersectional identity, Baby Belle is a shining star' **** (TheWeeReview.com); **** 'Oozes warmth and charm and silliness.' (NorthWestEnd.com); Nominated – Autistic Excellence (Neurodivergent Review) and LGBTQ+ OffFest (Offies) 2023. Trigger warning: bullying, ableism, queerphobia.
