New play focusing on life with Asperger’s comes to The Alley
26 October 2018
‘It Only Takes a Minute’, a fascinating one-woman show, presented by C21 theatre company and featuring the songs of Take That will be performed at the Alley Theatre, Strabane on Friday 16th November.
The play focuses on the life of Michelle, a young woman living with Asperger’s.
The fast-paced show, written by Tom Finlay, features a stand out performance by Anna Kyle, one of Northern Ireland’s emerging disabled actresses.
The piece begins with 26 year-old Michelle receiving her diagnosis.
“Take That” become Michelle’s confidants, mentors, and best friends in the solace of her bedroom.
This results in a culmination of events that result in meltdown and a period where Michelle is forced to learn more about herself and the world around her.
Emma Devine Marketing Officer at the Alley Theatre commented “This play is so important as so many people are affected by Asperger’s.
“Anna Kyle really displays an emotional performance filled with comedy, loneliness and the up and downs that every teenager faces. It is one not to be missed.’
