Phoenix Theatre Arts present
Living with Luke
Written & Directed by Paul T Davies
Adapted from the blogs by Danson Thunderbolt
Danson Thunderbolt is no ordinary Dad, and his teenage son Luke is not so ordinary either. For Luke is autistic and the Autistic Shadow gets between them every single day, making communication a struggle. So what's a Dad to do? Wrestle the Autistic Shadow that's what!
Staged entirely in a wrestling ring and featuring Danson Thunderbolt as himself, this astonishing play has been critically acclaimed since it premiered at The Mercury Theatre in Colchester and now tours nationally for the first time.
“One of the most visceral, in-your-face, funny, emotionally-affecting plays I have seen for years.”East Anglian Daily Times
“Brilliant… Wonderful… Poignant” Colchester Gazette
“Great writing and directing, brilliant staging, intense acting… a wonderful evening's theatre” Harlow Star
