This Is All Just Temporary
Lauren, a recent college grad, moves back in with her parents while she looks for a job. However the behavioral aggression of Noah, Laurens adult brother with autism, is severely increasing. Lauren struggles between her desire to move away and the urgent need to help her family in a time of crisis.
This is All Just Temporary is an experiential performance that shapes the audience's understanding through Noah's lens. Though never seen onstage, Noah becomes present through bursts of light and sound, echoing misfired synapses and heightened sensory interactions. As the world seeks the key to understanding this individually unique condition, the family's burning desire to communicate with Noah is explored through shadows, echoes, and a narrative that carries the weight of love.
The show runs 90 minutes without an intermission and is recommended for ages 16 and above. Most performances are followed by a 30 minute Converging Minds conversation with local advocates, resource providers, and caretakers. This new work will serve as Convergence Theatres offering in the 2018 Womens Voices Theatre Festival.
Performances are at the Anacostia Arts Center and generously supported by ARCH Development.
