Impersonal Space offers a warm and funny insight into an experience shared by thousands of school-aged children.
'Nameless’ is a nine-year-old girl who loves her family, stargazing and hot chips. But she isn't like the other children – she’s hyper intelligent but sometimes does strange things, and the bullies call her “dopey” and “weird”. She feels isolated, sad and confused, until she discovers she has autism.
Taking comfort in her scientific heroes and imaginary friends Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton, Nameless sets out on a journey of the imagination to find strength in her differences and confidence in herself. Drawing on the personal experiences of its autistic cast, Impersonal Space offers a warm and funny insight into an experience shared by thousands of school-aged children.
