From Press Release

Always Unique, Totally Interesting, Sometimes Mysterious is a one-woman show about the challenges and triumphs of living with autism. It tells the story of Chloe, and her neuro-typical sister Olivia, as they try and navigate their way through high school and adolescence. Always Unique […]  gives audiences a glimpse into Chloe and Olivia’s lives, where sensory overload and meltdowns are a daily occurrence. It also shows the perspective of both girls and the struggles they face while trying to define and fight for their independence.

Always Unique, Totally Interesting, Sometimes Mysterious is a phenomenal piece of theatre. Funny, moving, awe-inspiring […] it is a work of astonishing creativity and maturity. A highlight of the Fringe 2015, it walks the fine line between being perfectly realized as is and offering a tantalizing glimpse of the work it might become.” (The View Magazine, Hamilton)
