The Sheen Center presents the New York premiere of Tectonic Theater Project’s Uncommon Sense, a new play about living on the autism spectrum. From the company that created The Laramie Project and 33 Variations, and inspired by interviews with real people living on the spectrum, this multimedia play reveals our universal challenges with “difference,” our desire to connect, and the lengths we will go for the people we love.

It runs for five weeks from October 25 to November 26.

November 11 & 19 will be Relaxed Performances, with slight modifications to technical elements, such as light and sound, to make the performance more comfortable for individuals with sensory sensitivities. But 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.

There will be talkbacks after matinee performances on November 4, 11, 18 & 25 and a special panel discussion after the November 5
th performance entitled: Autism and Faith: Animating Hope. November 16th will be an ASL Interpreted Performance. For more information, visit the Uncommon Sense Resources page at SheenCenter.org.
