Christina, fifteen years old from England, stands beside Mrs. Shears' dead dog. It is seven minutes after midnight, and Christina is under suspicion. She records each fact in the book she is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. She has an extraordinary brain and is exceptional at math, but she is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. Christina is on the autism spectrum and has trouble understanding emotional and non-verbal cues. She has never ventured alone beyond the end of this road, she detests being touched and she distrusts strangers. But Christina's detective work, forbidden by her father, takes her on a revealing journey that turns her world upside-down.
This new interpretation of the best selling novel places the audience inside the mind of someone on the autism spectrum. Light, movement, projections and stark sets all add to the riveting and often funny show.
This event is free and open to the public.
