About: Plastic Figurines

“Mum told me that there was something in his brain that was different, she said that he liked to put his toys in lines and that was a symptom or whatever. I used to go in his room and see all his stuffed animals in a line and I’d mess them up. I’d mess the line up.”

Rose loves her brother Mikey. Mikey loves Rose, Bruce Willis films and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but he hates change. When their mum is diagnosed with leukaemia, their world is plunged into chaos. Rose returns home to find a very different brother to when she left. But today is his eighteenth birthday and Rose wants everything to be perfect but life with Mikey isn’t ever that simple.

Inspired by events in the playwright’s own life, Plastic Figurines is a funny and moving new play that explores autism and the relationship between siblings with very different views of the world.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.

Reviews

★★★★ “Adam Quayle’s production for Box of Tricks has a tempo and delicacy to match the writing... It’s only a small play, but its fleeting 70 minutes leave you with the sense of having stumbled across something quietly courageous and personal.”
The Guardian

★★★★ “A tender, nuanced piece of new writing exploring autism and the bond between siblings... There is depth and delicacy to the writing, and humour too...Adam Quayle’s confident, contained production is full of quietly moving moments.”
The Stage

★★★★ “Particularly compelling, skilfully propelling viewers through an arc of emotions… Greenhill’s fine writing, which shifts the action backwards and forwards over one central point, creates an empathetic picture of the siblings… Beautiful moments of verbal and visual humour.”
Liverpool Echo
