|Appears in||All in a Row (2014)|
Laurence is a main character in the British play All in a Row.
The play is inspired by director Alex Oates' own experience with working with autistic children for over 10 years.
Whereas the other characters are played by real people, Lawrence is represented by a life-size puppet, operated by puppeteer Hugh Purves. The puppet has a grey-ish skintone.
Laurence is described as "autistic, non-verbal, and occasionally violent".
Among other things, the choice to have Laurence portrayed by an puppet rather than a real child actor drew significant controversy and sparked the Twitter hashtag #puppetgate.
