"A Different Brain’ [...] was impressive, moving and engrossing. Combining a serious matter with light comedy worked really well, allowing all audiences to have more of an insight into a realistic day in the life of a person suffering from Autism, and those surrounding them."
Beth Cook - Cardiff Times
"A Different Brain, is a well constructed, relevant script, written from a perspective of love and understanding. A must see for everyone"
"A Different Brain' is the exciting seed of an idea that can blossom into a proactive and educational piece of art, discussing a subject matter that, for too long, has been disregarded."
