A Port Theatre Discovery Series Presentation
I Want to be an Astronaut is the story of an autistic young adult, Morgan, and their struggles to determine their place in the world. On a trip to a snoezelen room, Morgan opens up to their best friend, Avery, about their impossible ambitions and their difficulties settling for real life. They've spent so long living in their head, how can they possibly find a space to thrive in reality? Maybe it's better to lose yourself in a beautiful illusion than face the world as it is.
Inspired by the real life experiences of the autistic author, this play explores the sense of self, mental health issues, and the struggle of finding your path. 60 mins. plus post-show chat in theatre.
