Description

The Changeling Girl explores experiences of neurodivergency through the captivating story of Agnes, an autistic girl living in medieval England accused of being a fairy changeling. Told through a spellbinding combination of theatre, poetry, movement and music – we will take you on an inspiring journey into a fairy tale landscape which celebrates the beauty of our (neuro)differences, as well as the struggle of living in a world not designed for neurodivergent people. This piece has been created by our neurodivergent company as a love letter to the community, to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone!
