About the Show

This revealing four-part docu-series is an ambitious and uplifting artistic project undertaken by a group of autistic children. Nine autistic children come together from all over the UK to attempt the apparently impossible feat of producing their very own Variety Show, under the guidance of experienced theatre professionals. As the children battle to overcome the severe challenges of their conditions, the most remarkable changes are witnessed. As the children 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 friends for the first time in their lives. The series observes this transformative experience through the eyes of the children and their parents as the cast prepares for the performance of their life in front of a packed audience at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith.
