Following a hugely successful tour of the UK in 2016, the acclaimed play by Paul T. Davies comes to Colchester for two performances only!
LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!
One Dad wrestles with autism!
Danson Thunderbolt is no ordinary Dad, and his teenage son Luke is not so ordinary either. For Luke is autistic and the Autistic Shadow gets between them every single day, making communication a struggle. So what’s a Dad to do? Wrestle the Autistic Shadow that’s what!
Join us in a real wrestling ring as Thunderbolt fights the Shadow - literally - to make contact with Luke and the Ref tries to keep control! Funny, poignant and real, the play is adapted from the blog Living with Luke, and fuses wrestling and theatre to show what life is like living with an autistic child.
Part wrestling match, part play, Living With Luke returns to its home town and is not to be missed!
Suitable for 12+, though containing some strong language – and wrestling!
“Brilliant acting and very well portrayed. As a parent myself of an autistic teenage son it was like having a ringside seat (literally) of my own life, which I have to say was 'spot on'.” (Audience member)
Tickets £14 / £12 concessions.
Doors open 2.30pm, show starts 3pm.
