"On the Spectrum." 

When: July 29-Aug. 14 2013
Phone: 271-5523
Looking for actors for the following roles: Cormac "Mac" Sheridan - In his early twenties, thin and brilliant. Elizabeth Sheridan - 54, still beautiful, but weary. Iris - Early twenties. We are also looking for additional support from those with experience in modern dance. We are looking for an additional four dancers and a choreographer for the production. A dramaturg is needed for the production. Those with interest and experience may contact the director with the information below. ABOUT THE PLAY: Is autism a disability or a difference? This simple but profound question is at the center of a new play by Ken LaZebnik. A young man with Asperger's, passing as "typical" after years of mainstreaming and therapy, connects with a woman who proudly champions her autism as a difference, not a disorder. This love story between an "aspie" and an "autie" reveals the contradictions between finding success as yourself and on the world's terms, and the conflict between the desire for acceptance and the desire for achievement.
