Inspired by true stories of people living on the autism spectrum, Uncommon Sense is a new play that delves into the mysteries of the brain. This multimedia play weaves together the four personal journeys of Dan, Jess, Moose, and Lali â€” as well as their families and friends â€” as it reveals our universal challenges with â€œdifference,â€ our desire to connect, and the lengths to which we go for the people we love. Uncommon Sense embraces all audiences, from those finally seeing their experiences reflected on the stage, to those peering into the autism world for the very first time.
The shows November 11 at 2pm and November 19 at 3pm will be Relaxed Performances, intended to attract and accommodate individuals who may not be able to comply with traditional theater etiquette. At these performances, all noises, movements and behaviors are welcomed and supported. Additionally, there will be slight modifications to technical elements, such as light and sound, to make the performance more comfortable for individuals with sensory sensitivities.
Uncommon Sense will be presented in an inclusive, judgment-free environment. In addition to offering scheduled Relaxed Performances, Tectonic and The Sheen Center welcome audience members of all abilities to all performances. At no point will anyone be shushed or asked to leave due to noises, movements or behaviors related to a cognitive or developmental disability.
