This Theatre Festival Features Playwrights and Performers on the Autism Spectrum

Last summer, after switching to an entirely digital platform, the Center for Applied Drama and Autism (CADA) solicited original, one-act scripts from around the world. Within a matter of weeks, CADA received eight excellent 10-20 minute plays from playwrights on the spectrum, with physical or developmental disabilities, or who are intimately connected with the disabled community.

These playwrights, along with the directors and nearly 50 actors tasked with bringing their words to life, hail from India, New York, Texas, and even here in Akron. The plays will now be presented virtually all summer, each for a weekend of unlimited streaming and a talk-back with the cast and crew.
