THE ORIGINAL STEALTH ASPIES COMPANY DISBANDED AFTER OUR LAST SHOWS, 14-15TH SEPTEMBER 2019.
A new project is currently under way. If you are interested in working in or with us, let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Here is the trailer for the film of our June 2019 Marlborough Theatre show.
We were honoured that the legendary and arch Edinburgh festival fringe critic and performer Kate Copstick interviewed us for a podcast devoted to autistic performers. We asked along our friend and fan from New York City, Anders Lee to join us. Anders has a revealing, brave and funny solo show on the Festival right now, called Dummy.
Aspies Annonymous set played in a new venue, Finnegan’s Wake, Venue 101, 9B Victoria Street. 12 midday for six days, 4-9th of August 2019. It went well and we loved it. We missed our old friends.
Sadly Sarah Saeed and Hannah Yahya Hassan have gone on to other projects. We wish them well. Janine will not be appearing in the near future also. Everyone should keep an eye on her work though, as the woman is busy saving us all one way or another. Janine has a new book out in September.
The company is as a river, in flow and eternally changing. You never know who might turn up from the growing global Autistic Underground.
Please do come see. 🙂

AUTISTIC MOTHERS SURVEY: surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8LCWR7L
Welcome to the Stealth Aspies website. We are the worlds first and only 100% autistic theatre company and have been in existence for three years now. Here you will find our history and ideas without pity porn or concepts of disability constantly mitigating our voices.
The purpose of the company is to tell the truth of the lives of autistic people. Born this way. Living this way. Having empathy for others of our kind like us. Neither less nor more, we portray ordinary everyday autistic people.
We read and hear that as a community and a kind, autistic people are getting tired of having their natures and themselves stigmatised and related to in terms of relative deficits when with with the right adjustments and conditions, we can live our lives on our own terms and be happy. We are usually not seen as people with personality and character. Rather we are, apparently, a set of cliche’d characteristics. Or symptoms depending on your point of view.
Performing the words and poems of real autistic people is a privilege and means we find ourselves in the experiences of others. Men. Women. Children. LGBTI. Married. Parents. in relationships and alone. The spectrum of humanity is here for you to find. Please help us and contribute your stories.
Each member has their own page which constitutes individual blogs.
Our first two years of shows have been written from survey responses. Here are the links.
