Theatre in the Library: The Washing Machine of Destiny


Luca Saunders is still a teenager; Philip Robinson is getting on a bit. Both are on the autistic spectrum. The Washing Machine Of Destiny theatre show is a conglomeration of their bonkers ideas, perhaps like nothing you will have seen before. An eclectic mixture of music and characters and story and conversation and yet more music in a show that they have created together.

Luca had the idea he wanted to make a play that could communicate some of the weird and wonderful and occasionally worrying things that zip through his neurodivergent brain at a hundred miles an hour, and Philip was well up for that, adding in his own zippy things too. Pippa Marriott came in to slow things down a little and do some directing. All three live in Devon.

It's true to say young Luca is now an emerging actor and is certainly an experienced ‘autie’. Old Philip is a very experienced actor and, it would also be true to say, is now an emerging ‘autie’. Their ten-year friendship is a match made in heaven, or at least in the hot temperature tumbling crazy spin cycle of their shared experiences.

This show lasts 80 minutes, no interval. Come for a spin.
