Forgive Me

This event has passed

Fringe First winning collaborators Tamsin Shasha and Helen Tennison present this dialogue between a mother and her neurodiverse son, which explores the close connection between autism and gaming, and our cultural need to fight monsters.

Forgive Me follows on from the critical success of double award winning, Everything I See I Swallow (Shasha & Taylor Productions) and like that project responds directly to the challenges and turbulence of the world today.

Working with digital pioneers BRiGHTBLACK, video mapping specialist Giles Thacker and set designer Maira Vazeou, it examines why superheroes hold such a place the world today through live audience interaction, gaming and pole-dancing.

Conceived and performed by Tamsin Shasha

Co-devised and directed by Helen Tennison

This will be the first public sharing of an exciting research and development project exploring the connection between neurodiversity and gaming and will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience, exploring these themes.
