This is an amazing play of a 15 year old boy with autism (Asperger's Syndrome), who solves some mysteries and in the end finds himself at a higher level psychologically. The acting is superb.The adaptation of the book to the show is ingenious. All said, this is a riveting performance not to be missed. A+ Would see it again!

I am 15 years and 4 months and 5 days and for me it was the best play I've ever seen. I loved the book because the writing was simple and honest with no pretence and the play was the same. You could really see Christopher right there in front of you and felt as though you were experiencing what he was going through. Luke Treadaway was perfect for the part because he portrayed Christopher exactly how I imagined the character when reading the book. I personally don't think anyone else could have played the part better. The transition in the character is conveyed beautifully as by the end he is able to express himself and he really is no different to you and me.

The play was very moving and though I don't have autism it inspired me in another way as it's about difference and that extraordinary people can achieve seemingly impossible goals. That's why I think it's such a wonderful play: because it affects people from all walks of life and I would love to see it again.

Its okay, abit of a thin story. The set is strong and acting fine, but lacks warmth.
