WAKING OPPORTUNITY

Full-length play, currently in development

"And I don’t mean I was able to like turn on and off again because that 

Well that’s kind of the whole point. Isn't it?

For the first time 

Whatever it is I I I can't control it.

And that’s when it became a bit of a problem."

16-year-old Alex has hit a bit of a wall. Everything's fine. It is. It's just since the start of this year, her life's been chucked in the air. And nobody seems to really care. Waking Opportunity is a play about neurodiversity in education, dealing with loss and what happens when all you can think about is a Rover stuck on Mars.
