BEEhavioural Problems: Something Something Autism

Suitable for Age 18 +

The Edinburgh Fringe 2023 cult hit returns to Brighton Fringe: Tired of being treated like an animal at work because of their autism, this award-winning (Keep it fringe 2023) clown becomes the animal in various skits & bits including dog holy communion, crab communication, sexy bees along with reflections on the autistic experience and dealing with   the struggles that this brings in a world that claims it doesn't want people to BEE themselves. Stephen will bring you into the neurodiverse point of view (for Neurotypicals and Neurodiverse alike).


Warning the show does not feature as many bees as the title implies; this is not a show on bees also the show is more about SHOWING  autism than just talking about it.


Warnings: Covers themes of ableism and suicidal thoughts
