Catapult Theatre Company presents
by Samuel Clayton
Daniel is obsessed with Jazz, but the world is too loud a place to hear what’s going on. Javeed doesn’t understand a word, but happily communicates with anybody by smiling. Toby makes a lot of noise, but nobody seems to listen…
An exploration of Asperger’s, Down Syndrome and misunderstood emotions introduces you to the parents, teachers, friends and professionals who touch the lives of three very different boys with one shared hope in life.
From innocent observations of classmates to bureaucratic perplexities of Education Authorities, ‘Statements’ is a narrative commentary on the world of Special Educational Needs and the people it affects the most.
“I had a chance
To find the music in the noise. Hear melodies and strive
To breathe through chaos all the while. Right now, I was alive!”
