Talk To Me is a new family musical about Graham, a 12 year-old boy on the autism spectrum, who makes friends with the Siri app on his mom’s iPhone. Whereas other kids don’t take the time to understand Graham, Siri is able to answer any of Graham’s questions, lets him have conversations at his own pace and is patient with him when he asks the same questions more than once. It’s through his interactions with Siri that others are able to see another side to Graham — allowing him to make new friends, gain a new level of understanding in his relationship with his mother and eventually change his entire school.
