Strange Faces examines the trials and triumphs of three families navigating autism. From parents Jill and Dell searching for answers for their young son Jamie, to siblings Peter and Rachel truly growing closer through adolescence to Harrison and Laura redefining their relationship as adults.


Three families with one motivation tie their stories together - the willingness to love unconditionally and the strength to try. Against the odds and stereotypes presented by society, these families stick together.

Austin American-Statesman

The work they create...is a vital part of an important national conversation, and there is nothing else like it on the Austin stage.

TILT Performance Company was a fun romp of a show with a lot of heart and a fantastic message that is great for audiences of all ages.

Shanon Weaver
The Austin Chronicle

I settle in and quickly found myself in awe of the passion, dedication, and talent put forth by a wholly inspirational cast.
