"Theory of Mind" Tells Story of Autistic Teen

Theory of Mind, a sensitive, unsentimental portrait of relationships, tells the story of Bill, a teenager who happens to live on the autism spectrum. It’s part of Playhouse in the Park’s touring "Off the Hill" family series with performances in Northern Kentucky Feb. 14-22.
 
Theory of Mind, winner of the 2008 Macy’s New Play Prize for Young Audiences, follows Bill’s first date with a young woman unsure of her own reasons for romance, exploring the challenges of a young man who wants desperately to love someone but struggles with the social skills needed to achieve a rewarding relationship. It’s recommended for ages 11 and up.
 
Admission is free or inexpensive and is available at the door. Contact the performance location for ticket information. Contact information is available on the Playhouse website at www.cincyplay.com.
