‘Bugger. Maybe you aren’t Rain Man. Maybe you’re more of a Drizzle Boy.’

Drizzle Boy loves space. So does his companion, Space Bear, and his hero, Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova. The stars are far away from a world that unforgivingly pokes and prods him.

Until Drizzle Boy is brought back to earth by Juliet, who enters his orbit on the first day of university.

How does one figure out romance, when social etiquette already seems arbitrary? Who makes the rules? Who enforces them? And why should any of that matter, when your world is conjoined with the vast infinitude of outer space?

Ryan Enniss’ award-winning Drizzle Boy is the first Australian play written by an autistic playwright about an autistic protagonist.
