Oliver Hetherington-Page hates Sheldon Cooper. Perhaps he protests too much because why else would his first one-man cabaret be so heavily obsessed with the lead character of The Big Bang Theory? Simple.
It’s time to set the record straight – and what better way than with show tunes and stories? Oliver is an artist on the autism spectrum and he’s constantly fighting against the stereotypes popular culture tells the world about the condition.
Authentic representation of autism stories on stage is the best way to defeat the Sheldon Cooper syndrome, according to Oliver. Sheldon is a science nerd. Oliver is a theatre kid. Sheldon is obsessed with trains. Oliver is hyper-fixated on musicals. Sheldon has a girlfriend. Oliver is desperately awaiting that Big Bang.
The No Bang Theory is a musical journey from dating disasters to diagnosis through #actuallyautistic eyes.
