Have you ever felt you weren’t normal? Or a bit weird, or wrong inside? In Asper-Girl, you can follow Hannah’s musical how-to guide on all things normal! Hannah may be autistic, but this autobiographical one-woman show is very, very normal. It’s filled with normal things that normal women do. No weird stuff here! Using Spoon Theory to compartmentalise your day is a very useful and ordinary activity. Colour-coding your food is a very sensible, run-of-the-mill pastime too. Hannah is a normal woman, doing normal things, on a normal stage, in a normal musical.
Asper-Girl is a solo 1-Act musical exploring the female experience of autism, with Book by Hannah Cound and Music and Lyrics by Amy Le Rossignol and Hannah Cound. It was presented as a work-in-progress show for Maiden Speech Festival in November 2019 at the Tristan Bates Theatre and played to a sold-out audience.
“A gorgeous musical. Cound, along with Amy Le Rossignol who also writes the music and lyrics for the show, create a lovely piece with a strong premise and stage presence.” – Within Her Words.
