Spectrum is based on the life of Temple Grandin, a remarkable woman with Autism who was wrongly diagnosed as brain damaged at the age of three. Drawing comparisons with her autistic mind and animal thinking, she developed an acute understanding of animal behaviour. Her findings revolutionized the slaughter industry across the US and earned her a doctorate in animal science, making her one of the leading spokespeople for autism and significantly changing the world’s understanding of the disorder. Spectrum is a charming and funny piece of theatre that takes the audience on a journey through another way of thinking.
