Reach For Autism presents

In Our World: A Day On The Spectrum



How much do you know about autism? In recognition of the thousands of people living with autism in Scotland this sketch and Q&A explores themes of education, bullying, criminal justice, sensory issues, employment and acceptance.

If you are willing to learn more about autism then come along to find out what a day on the spectrum is really like, In Our World.

Please note that the performance is in support of Autism Awareness month and some parts may not be suitable for some autistic individuals.

Cutting Edge Theatre presents

Downs With Love


“They told me that I should have told them I have Downs.
Why? What difference does that make?”


“Downs With Love” explores the subject of love and disability and challenges us to consider what we view to be “acceptable”. Can we accept seeing a couple - one of whom has Down’s and the other does not? Do we understand the complexities and issues surrounding love and disability? The play has been written around the performers and especially with Abi Brydon, the central actor. Cutting Edge Theatre have worked with Abi, taking her own feelings, challenges and experiences growing up with Down’s and creating a very real, moving performance around her.
