The Storyteller is an interactive story about telling stories. 

When you play The Storyteller, you’ll make choices that change the story, and then start telling stories of your own.

Reading and telling the story will take 20 – 30 minutes.

The Storyteller was developed as part of the Limitless project, a partnership between the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the National Theatre of Scotland and National Autistic Society ScotlandThe three organisations are currently working in collaboration with autistic artists to develop a framework for the engagement of autistic people in creative activity as artists, audiences and participants.


On Wed 22 July from 6pm, Harry Josephine Giles will lead an interactive online workshop for autistic storytellers and potential storytellers. This is for anyone on the autistic spectrum, including people with earlier diagnoses such as PDD and Asperger’s, and including people who don’t have a formal diagnosis. Participants will make their way through The Storyteller, then take part in a discussion on the stories they came up with.

The workshop will be delivered via Microsoft Teams, and participants will be able to interact with the discussion via webcam, microphone or text.
