Synopsis

An evocative parable of crashing into the unknown and accepting the unknowable, God’s Middle Name is a compelling tale of one mother’s journey through the uncharted territory of raising an autistic child.  Along the way are flights of fancy and an abundance of humour, told in non-chronological snapshots in different story styles. Written with unflinching honesty, sensitivity, and a lightness of touch, this powerfully moving show explores the struggles and celebrations of the many challenges life throws in our path.
