A-Typical Rainbow is an authentic representation of autism and a charming queer coming of age story – review

Reading now: 946

A-Typical Rainbow is a rare play: its central subject matter is autism, and it’s written by someone on the autism spectrum. Playwright JJ Green – who plays the role of ‘Boy’ in this show – is an advocate for neurodivergent representation in theatre, so to have this show debuting in London is certainly something to celebrate.

It’s also a charming queer coming of age story, full of wonder and discovery. We’ve become big fans of the Turbine Theatre and their commitment to giving new LGBTQ+ works a platform, and to representing the untold stories of marginalised groups: A-Typical Rainbow is another fine example of this.

The audience is invited in to see the world from Green’s point of view, and it’s a fascinating journey. There’s a dreamlike quality to proceedings – indeed the play includes numerous sequences which delve deep into Green’s imagination, where mermaids are as real as anything else in the surrounding world.
