In the Life of a Child by Gena Sims
Olivia, a girl who believes she cannot speak, has had enough of getting bullied on the Playground. She dreams of a world in which the Playground children are willing to "listen to her story" and hold her hand without "withering away when it starts to shake." Through music and movement, Olivia shows us her dream of how she thinks the world should be.
An Autism Theatre Project production, In the Life of a Child illustrates that with empathy, compassion, and the willingness to listen to each other's stories, we can empower one another and give a voice to those who believe they have none.

Through the Looking-Glass by Michael James and Joe Hill
Mad tea. Keyboard rager. Party of pity. Scrolling down, forever. Falling down, until it buffers. Into the bottomless blue hole. Time passes, and leaves; walks out the door. Stole the tarts, stole my heart.
