On the Spectrum 

 

Written by Blaize Berry & Marybeth Berry

 

University of South Carolina

(South Carolina)

 

 

This play will explore the real and sometimes raw emotions of the effects of an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis. Varying from perspectives between both a son and his mother, this play will take the audience on a deeply personal journey of discovery. The show will include the numerous challenges a child has to endure when struggling with the symptoms that lead to the diagnosis, the stigma that comes with labels, and the social and emotional adversities that plague him while simultaneously trying to remain "normal". His mother combats the strong feelings of guilt and resentment while trying to find new and creative ways to navigate their ever-evolving relationship. The result is a dynamic dialogue with blended gestures and movement pieces between mother and son that examines the innermost fears and triumphs that forge the path between the peaks and valleys of the society they have face whether together or apart.
