I Want To Be An Astronaut written by Theo Soloway
Thursday, March 14, 2024 @ 7:30pm

“I Want To Be An Astronaut” is the story of an autistic young adult, Morgan, and their struggles to determine their place in the world. On a trip to a snoezelen room, Morgan opens up to their best friend, Avery, about their impossible ambitions and their difficulties settling for real life. They’ve spent so long living in their head, how can they possibly find a space to thrive in reality? Maybe it’s better to lose yourself in a beautiful illusion than face the world as it is.

Inspired by the real life experiences of the autistic author, this play explores the sense of self, mental health issues, and the struggle of finding your path.

Show length: 65 minutes
Plus post-show chat in theatre
Reception in the lobby afterwards with complimentary food and drinks

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided.
