It Only Takes a Minute
We are delighted to announce our brand new show for Autumn 2018!
It Only A Takes Minute is a superb one-women show performed by disabled actress Anna Kyle. The production focuses on the life of Michelle, a young female with Asperger’s syndrome.
The piece begins with 26 year-old Michelle receiving her diagnosis. She then, through a series of flashbacks, re-lives a number of scenes in her life.
The punchy, fast paced script is assisted by the music and Lyrics of Boy Band ‘Take That’ and takes you on a rollercoaster ride alongside Michelle as she grows up in the 1990’s. ‘Take That’ becomes Michelle’s confidants, mentors and best friends in the solace of her bedroom. The band, however, soon become an obsession, with the lyrics at times taken all too literally. This leads to a culmination of events that result in a meltdown and a period where Michelle is forced to learn more about herself and the world around her.
The piece is a mix of fun, excitement, uncertainty and sometimes an all too real overload of emotion, casting a light on the increasing number of females with undiagnosed Aspergers and their struggle living in a neurotypical society.
