The Indigo Kids
Tina Biello wrote and acted in this children’s play written for a school tour. The play is about an autistic child and how they manage—or don’t manage—at school.
Jesse is a writer and has a very unique story to share. She and her best friend Susie venture to tell Jesse’s story about her first day of school, and beyond. Jesse has autism, and as the play progresses, the audience sees how the simplest of tasks are not so easy for her.
Jesse, Susie, Gigi, and the other characters go on an adventurous ride through school memories and Jesse learns through trial and error how to communicate with everyone in the “outside world.”
