Paul Wady’s unique and controversial mass autism conversion show. Toured around hospitals, services and the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringes, dare you embrace the new normal? Comedy? Immersive interactive discussion? Cabaret? You decide. Participatory and only mildly erotic, you will never see autism, Asperger’s and neurodiversity the same way again. The show of the book Guerilla Aspies – a neurotypical society infiltration manual which has sold over 300 copies, paperback and Kindle.
