A lot has been said about All in a Row online (especially on Twitter around #puppetgate) – about the play itself, its depiction of autism and its use of a puppet in portraying the non-verbal autistic 11-year-old character. At a post-show forum, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock moderated an event taking the conversation offline.
In the face of protests outside and online, All in Row received its world premiere last night at London’s Southwark Playhouse. Theatre critics have started delivering their verdict on the play and production; on Thursday, the public will be able to pose their questions and concerns to the show’s creators. Time to get booking and/or submitting your questions.
