Why can't we write a real play about Autism?
The topic is fascinating as so many stories about autism are, but once again the playwright by trying to present a person with autism as if they are completely like us, just misunderstood. I have spent my life working in the theatre, and working with children with autism. It is my life's work combining the two. The scenework is beautiful, bur then the playwright ruins it with these ridiculous monologues that the girl gives to the audience which normalize her autism. This is just as offensive as having an African American person deliver monologues in the style of "white people". That is literally the exact same thing the playwright does. If you want to read a truly great play about a person with autism, read Falling by Deanna Jent.

Boring, cliché, disservice to autism. Mediocre.
This is a completely mediocre play. Everything about it is a cliché. The treatment of the topic(s) is very amateurish. A disservice to autism and science. Acting is decent. Not bad not great. However the portrait of the autistic child is painful to listen though, because it is so poorly written. Not recommended. So many better plays, and better works dealing with autism.
