My "stand-up documentary" about the early years with my autistic child. Basis of my recent CBC Radio's IDEAS documentary, and released as a book this year by Hagios Press, this "99% true" play is part comedy routine, part performance piece, and ultimately entirely the story of a parent coming to love and accept the kid she has.
