March 24 - April 9

at the Todd Wehr Theater at the Marcus Center Directions

Caitlin sees the world in black and white. Colors are messy, and recess is chaotic. As an 11-year-old on the autism spectrum, Caitlin used to rely on her older brother to help make sense of a world that doesn’t fit her definitions, but now that he’s gone, she’s all on her own. With the support of her advisor, father, and a new reading buddy, Caitlin begins to understand how to embrace the “messiness” of emotions. Soaring with heart and humor, discover how the perseverance of one girl can change a community – and how black and white can always be complemented by a kaleidoscope of colors. Suggested for families with young people ages 10-17+
