Part two in an occasional series in which Henry Normal uses poetry, storytelling and comedy to explore life’s big questions.
Last year Henry brought us his acclaimed show – ‘A Normal Family’, which centred around his son, Johnny, who was diagnosed with “mildly severe” autism. In this profound, funny and moving show, Henry explored what this meant for his family.
This time Henry brings us his new show, ‘A Normal Life’. Drawing on his experiences bringing up a child with autism, Henry investigates where edges are, and how we are connected. As well as his trademark humour, the show tackles the subjects of life, death, loneliness, loss, human frailty and other classic conversation stoppers.
