Are you eccentric? Take the test as Quentin Crisp introduces Emily Dickinson, Spike Milligan, Screaming Lord Sutch, Patricia Highsmith and a cast of legendary Outsiders. Winner of Lifetime Achievement Award, Neurodiverse Review 2023. The Guerilla Autistics show returns for its tenth year whilst still never being reviewed by the mainstream press. Guardian? Times? Scotsman? Telegraph? Forget it – they never come near. Not even the Fringe ones like Broadway Baby. Loved by autistic and neurodivergent people and now a Fringe institution. Paul Wady is too OCD to give up. Fun, interactive and neurodiverse.
