Living With A Dark Lord

Before you all run off, we’re NOT going all “Gothic” on you, so stick around.  In fact, this is to bring to your attention a play; a play written by the family of a young man, Shaun, coping with autism. Shaun’s particular autism has manifested itself with Shaun no longer speaking and wearing a cloak; assuming the mantle of “The Dark Lord” over the past 15 years. The play, written by his 3 sisters charts the impact of this altered persona, not just the darker aspects but also the brighter sparks of “hilarity and unexpected wisdom.” Experts can’t tell you what causes autism, but the only people on whom it impacts can tell the full story, dismissing the myths and giving the reality.

The hardest part has been done, the play is written; what the family are looking for now is funding for the opportunity to stage and register the play. The goal is £2,500 and though at time of writing £1,900 has been reached there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be smashed completely.

Thank you.



Let’s make some noise for Locksmiths - the original “key-workers”.

I have met The Dark Lord, he never spoke but as soon as I listened to his sister Cait, you could not help but feel the love. I think I will be making a special trip to Edinburgh this year

I hope you read about him making a full music video about his love of Blu tac! Quite brilliant
