Arco Jnr Event DatesFri 26 Aug 2022 ManPAC & WA Youth Theatre Company Present

Arco Jnr


“A beautifully constructed, personal perspective of life on the autism spectrum that leaves… a rare feeling of connection to the protagonist” (Lydia Edwards, 2021 Seesaw).

Adam is, in his words, an Autistic Gentleman. Finbar is a fish. Adam and Finbar think that asking someone what it feels like to live with autism is pretty much like asking a fish if it knows it’s in water, which is pretty funny if you think about it.

Based on the FRINGE WORLD award-winning show ARCO, and supercharged with the exciting animations of Perth artist Ben Hollingsworth, Adam Kelly’s new show, ARCO Jnr, is a family-friendly delight that you do not want to miss! Join us as Adam and Finbar dance, draw, fly and joke their way into young hearts.

Produced by WA Youth Theatre Company, co-written by Adam Kelly and James Berlyn. For details on ARCO Snr please go here >>
