Threshold Theatre joins forces with NAISA to present i dont want to be an inside me anymore, an adaptation of the radio documentary by Darren Copeland based on the autobiography by Birger Sellin and performed by German actor Sebastian Schäfer. Birger Sellin is determined to throw off the loneliness that "like a great clod of earth" threatens to "weigh down his soul." But, despite the eloquence and power of his writing, he remains severely autistic; his world is unbelievably remote from ours. Yet the uncompromisingly honest messages he sends to "humanity-without-me" will touch all those who read them and serve as he hopes, as inspiration for others who must struggle to express ideas and emotions locked deep inside themselves.
