And his story is one we want your help to share. Please join us on this incredible journey that we’re taking: from a speech by a mother struggling to understand her son, to a play about a family faced with tragedy, to a show about a boy pulling his family back together and, with your support, we want to take this story to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We have a wonderful script, a very supportive venue and a production team committed to telling this story in the best possible way. With your help, all this and more is possible.

Our Boy by Helen Hammond is a one act play inspired by real events.

Joe is a 14 year old autistic boy whose parents are separated and the play opens to find him shivering and alone after having been raped on his way home from school. The play follows Joe and his family on their journey into learning to cope, not only with the aftermath but with each other. As all three characters (Joe, his mother and his father) muddle through as best they can, they begin to rediscover how to connect as a family and look toward a brighter future.


As of May 5th, this project has raised $1,125 of their $5,032 goal. This project has 29 days left to raise the $5,032 or it will not be funded.
