“He was not like other boys….He did not see the world through the same eyes as us”

Tony struggles to fit in. He has a different way of looking at the world. Those surrounding him have little patience for his dreams, with the exception of his mother who will do anything to ensure his happiness.

But when Tony is offered a life changing chance, his mother must face a future without him, and the audience is forced to confront a moving ending.

This beautiful fairytale for adults is inspired by Lucy Clifford’s 1882 story Wooden Tony.  It focuses on a boy who displays many classic traits of the autistic spectrum, examining difference and acceptance through song, movement and puppetry.

Recommended age 12+
