MOXIE Theatre & TuYo Theatre in partnership with the Autism Society San Diego present the World Premiere of SAPIENCE by Diana Burbano. Elsa is a primatologist with a secret that’s easier to bear when she’s at work with Wookie, the orangutan she’s training to speak. Her worlds collide when her nephew AJ, a teenager who is nonverbal and on the autism spectrum, forms a relationship with Wookie. Sapience is a ground-breaking and imaginative new play about how we communicate and seek to be understood.
Ongoing until Sunday, February 20, 2022
