ECHOLALIA

Echolalia

A young woman on the autistic spectrum prepares for a much needed job interview and society’s social norms are put under the spotlight in this uplifting and optimistic show by Jen McArthur.

Inspired by the originality, struggles and joys of autistic children she worked with, McArthur’s character Echo doesn’t register social niceties, yet wants to be part of the world. Echolalia shares an understanding of high functioning autism with touching honesty, sympathy and a sense of humour.
