Strange Faces explores the experience of growing up with Asperger’s syndrome, a high-functioning disorder on the autism spectrum, from the perspective of three families, in each of which a child has Asperger’s. We follow a young boy who likes trains and his parents; a precocious, talkative younger brother and his sister; and a pair of twins celebrating their eighteenth birthday. In this new musical, they come to understand and accept their roles, however atypical, in their families and in each other’s lives.
