+ Our Narrative

Uncommon Sense was presented in an inclusive, judgment-free environment. At no point was anyone shushed or asked to leave due to noises, movements, or behaviors related to a cognitive/developmental disability.

Autistic License: The Art of Pure Vision, presented with Pure Vision Arts, filled the Gallery at The Sheen Center with works by artists on the autism spectrum. In keeping with Pure Vision Arts’ mission, this exhibit provides people with autism and developmental disabilities opportunities for artistic expression, and builds public awareness of their important creative contributions.

+ Relaxed Performances

Performances on November 11 at 2:00 pm and November 19 at 3:00 pm were Relaxed Performances, intended to attract and accommodate individuals who may not be able to comply with traditional theater etiquette.

+ Post-Show Discussions

Post-Show Talk-Backs were held following each Saturday matinee performance. Topics included the portrayal of Autism in the Media, the current state of Diversity & Inclusion in the Arts, and the Evolution of Uncommon Sense with Q&A's with cast and playwrights.
