Forgive Me is a show about autism and gaming, which is conceived, co-devised and performed by Tamsin Shasha in collaboration with Helen Tennison (co-deviser and director).
The project is autobiographical and based on the writer’s own experience of her son’s autism diagnosis, his obsession with gaming and the relationship between the two.
Featuring video projection, animation and interactive gaming, the play navigates the mother’s journey of understanding her son’s diagnosis and the fundamental role that the virtual world plays in his life.
Double award winning show ‘Everything I See I Swallow’ premiered at Summerhall as part of Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019.
Commissioned by The Lowry, the play explores themes of female empowerment, sexuality and feminism.
“Forgive Me” is a remarkable theatrical Tour de Force…physical theatre with real heart and intelligence”.
“A gorgeous evocation of intergenerational schism and mutual understanding.”
“So many ravishing moments… Astonishing and unforgettable… this is highly, highly recommended production.”
“Thoughtful and intelligent, (Tamsin) Shasha has the acting as well as the rope skills, a most unusual and rewarding hour.”
