Really well acted and definitely worth seeing. As Asperger's syndrome is being more commonly diagnosed, it will be more relevant to our lives too. I can't rate highly enough. I think the fact that it is still on in London West End, over a year...More

It was a very good show, especially if you liked the book! I wouldn’t recommend stalls seats as they are very expensive and the show doesn’t have special effects. Cheaper seats will be fine as well!

I brought my 12 year old boy and he loved it! It is a really wonderful story well told and certainly gives great insight into the world of autism.

We sat at the front 4 rows back and it was a great view. I'd recommend you go to the ticket offices in Trafalgar Square at 09:00 on the day you wish to see this and we got our tickets for £15.00. Good luck and enjoy
