Chase the Feeling

The live stream of CHASE THE FEELING for World Autism Awareness Day hass been cancelled due to unforeseen production issues.

We are extremely disappointed as we know you are too but we hope to announce a new time and date for the live streamed performance soon.

Starring: Nikki Allen, Julian Jaensch, Leeanne Marshall

Written & directed by: Michael Allen

Fast paced, poignant and satirical assasination of theatre and autism, an experience on the ways we construct people, identities and relationships everyday and onstage.

An autistic actor… can someone on the spectrum be capable of expressing emotions as part of a play?

On first thoughts, you might think not.

But theatre suspends the everyday relationships of able/disabled, autistic /neurotypical.

In this fast paced, poignant and satirical assasination of theatre and autism, the audience will experience for themselves the ways we construct people, identities and relationships everyday and onstage.


“a genre-busting marvel that satisfies on many different levels” 

– Benjamin Orchard, Stage Whispers


The play is a volume of Michael’s Masters of Philosophy in anthropology of theatre at the University of Adelaide. Based on fieldwork with what is considered the only autistic theatre company in the world, this is as much an academic article as it is a play.

The world premiere of this production made its public debut at the 2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival.

The current production and script rights are available.
