Cian has autism. He likes to spin tin-openers. He's taught all the actors on 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time' how to be autistic. They're very good at it. Journeying through Cian's mischievous mind, 'The Misfit Analysis' takes us through a world of wheelchairs and blow up dolls in an unconventional exploration of an autistic mind. This is not Rain Man. Using multi-media, video projection and his unique brand of performance poetry, Cian playfully questions the place of disability in today's world.
