Autistic And Stagestruck

LIVING CHANNEL – Saturdays from 2 April, 9.30pm

This landmark series follows nine autistic youngsters as they attempt the apparently impossible feat of producing their own stage show at a top London theatre, under the guidance of experienced theatre professionals who have never worked with an autistic cast before. As the youngsters battle to overcome the severely challenging nature of their conditions, remarkable changes are witnessed. And as they begin to collaborate, drawing on their skills and talents, the series reveals blossoming romances, increased independence, and the first tentative and daunting steps towards working together as a group and making lasting friendships, in some cases, for the first time in their lives.
