About this event

Be transported somewhere over the spectrum to NYC in The Aspie Hour; an irreverent and inventive cabaret that tackles the many misconceptions about being an 'Aspie' today. Sophie Smyth and Ryan Smedley, both diagnosed with Aspergers in their youth, are a fresh, dynamic duo who explore what it's like to be an Aspie through the prism of their identical obsession: music theatre.

Connecting with Aspies and neurotypicals alike, The Aspie Hour blows away misconceptions about Asperger's Syndrome. Together they flail through misread social cues, exhibit their awkward-est behaviour, and sing the hell out of everything. Don't miss this award-winning show as it makes its Perth debut!

Ryan Smedley and Sophie Smyth have been producing and presenting The Aspie Hour at venues around Australia since its inaugural production at the Ballarat Cabaret Festival in 2017. They met while working towards a Bachelor of Arts (Music Theatre) at Federation University's Arts Academy in Ballarat, Victoria, and began development of the work while they were still studying there. Since then, the acclaimed cabaret has been by sold out audiences, and won the prestigious Green Room Award for Best Writing in a Cabaret in 2019.
