Inspired by true events, NOTHING is a multi-media production featuring Ben, a young wordsmith/technology enthusiast with autism. Using poetry, music, and video, Ben shares his story of meeting "Barbie" in a divine online connection, standing up to his high school bullies, and finding ways to fit into a "normal" world.
NOTHING is based on Nic Balthazar's novel Nothing Was All He Said, which was inspired by a newspaper article about a young man with autism. Since the book's publication in Belgium in 2002, it has been adapted for stage in five countries, and twice for the screen, including 2007's Ben X. This production of NOTHING has won awards at the Cincy Fringe, United Solo (NYC) and the San Diego Fringe Festival.
