A young woman on the autistic spectrum prepares for a much needed job interview and society’s social norms are put under the spotlight in this "uplifting, very funny and totally optimistic"* clown theatre show by Jen McArthur. *Theatreview, NZ
Inspired by the originality, struggles and joys of autistic children she worked with, McArthur’s delightful character Echo doesn’t register social niceties, yet wants to be part of the world. Echolalia shares an experienced understanding of high functioning autism, “with touching honesty, sympathy and a sense of humour” * and does it through gentle and hilarious audience interaction, dance and physical comedy. *The Student, Edinburgh
“Through clowning, McArthur manages to conjure up a strange and unfamiliar realm without patronizing either her subject or her audience” The Scotsman, "utterly mesmerising…. utterly relatable." Broadway Baby
“Magnificently performed” 3 Weeks Ed. " ***** " Broadway Baby, " ***** " Edinburgh Guide
