The Stealth Aspies theatre company of entirely autistic adults was started in April 2017 when Paul Wady and Alain English met Sarah Saeed and Hannah Yahya - Hassan at the first Autism Arts Festival in Kent University. Annette Foster sadly had to drop out of the project due to other commitments. We were joined by Emma Faye and Chris Pike in one Edinburgh run. Janine Booth joined in 2017 and a good job too.

"There's no such thing as a bad dick, just bad men." Sexpert - Madame K! is 50 minutes of ridiculous, anarchic, and unpredictable clowning. This wild solo comedy show features a beautifully idiotic performer discovering what it means to be a 21st Century Feminist.

Don't worry, in this performance all Coqs are in cages! ***** EdFringe Review ‘Madame Komondor is doing God's work.' Written and Perfor...
