A collection of personal stories told in 10 minutes, chaired by Kirstie Higgins.
Robbie Curran is a neurodivergent actor/writer, and the first autistic actor to graduate from the Oxford School of Drama. His acting credits stretch across the UK, he performed his debut play Thomas at VAULT Festival 2019 and is currently writing for BBC’s ‘Doctors’. Robbie’s experience of a childfree life is more about being the person he wants to be and becoming the happiest version of himself, from the long-distance separation from his partner to the short distance of Covid lockdowns. Robbie’s experience is in many ways a love story, about learning that life turning out differently from how you expected can be the very thing that sets you free.
