Description

For the eighth year of this universally unique, neurodiversifying, audience-participatory solo show, Paul Wady has changed the name to Guerilla Autistics and wants to take you all back in time. (No more Nazi Hans Aspergers connotations). Born in 1963. Diagnosed autistic in 2004. How do you spend 41 years hiding what you are from even yourself? How do you love, live and relate as a Scouse punk-rocker Buddhist whose closet neurodivergent nature alienates him from most people? Contains laughs, tears, obsessions, autism and neurodiversity.
