SNAP! Productions is pleased to announce the mounting of a production of the nationally renown AUTISTIC LICENSE, by Stacey Dinner-Levin. Opening March 3rd and running through March 27, 2011, the play chronicles the struggles of a family dealing with a special needs child.
Autistic License is the autobiographical account of one family’s journey to raise a son with autism. From the time that her child is diagnosed at age three, “Mom” leads us through the challenges and milestones of living with autism. An omnipresent interviewer acts not so much as a guide, but rather a sounding board, as she moves along this uncharted path. We learn from her experiences, the impact this disability has on her marriage, and family, while witnessing first hand the best and the worst of people who encounter her son in the outside world. As a result of living with disability, not only does the family come to a greater understanding and appreciation of the uniqueness of this child, they also gain greater depths as individuals.
“Autistic License is a docudrama, a true-to-life play that takes audiences on the rollercoaster ride of raising a child with autism. It’s a sometimes exhausting, sometimes exhilarating, frequently terrifying trip that informs, enlightens and entertains. Dinner-Levin knows her material cold and delivers it with unflinching honesty.” ~Pioneer Press
