ABOUT THE PLAY
Murder. Mystery. Mayhem. Math. What begins as an investigation into the grisly death of a neighbor’s dog results in a remarkable coming-of-age journey for 15-year-old Christopher Boone. A self-described “mathematician with some behavioral problems,” our narrator sees things differently than those around him and, like fractals in a kaleidoscope, each revelation exposes another puzzle for him to solve. As the audience follows Christopher’s brilliant yet dizzying mind, the full story unravels in a visually dazzling sequence of events onstage. Simon Stephen’s beloved Tony and Olivier Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s bestselling novel challenges us to seek out the silver linings in ourselves—and others—as we make our way through the world.

ABOUT THE BOOK
An engaging insight into the often under-explored condition of autism in women and girls, delivered in an expertly researched and beautifully illustrated graphic book. The perfect resource for anyone who wishes to understand how gender affects autism, CAMOUFLAGE shows how to create safer, more accommodating environments for women on the spectrum.

We chose this book to be in conversation with the play because of the way they both explore life for those who see the world differently, told through dynamic visual mediums. The graphic novel and play work to capture in their own form how certain minds work and engage with the outside world.
