Make Me A Perfect Match
“Make Me A Perfect (Asperger’s) Match” a two-act play by guest contributor, Garret Mathews, is the story of
“this (mostly) cheerful guy named Max, who has Asperger’s. He’d like to go on a date with the (always) overwhelmed Victoria, who also has Asperger’s.
“Finally, Max summons the courage to make the call. A miracle happens and Victoria is interested. They agree to meet for lunch at the only place he feels comfortable — the break room of the McDonald’s where Max works in the drive-through.
“Will they hit if off, or just sit around and eat fries?”
The play was first produced in Indianapolis in early 2019.
[Garret Mathew] While I wanted to entertain the audience with “Perfect Match,” I also sought to enlighten them about Asperger’s. I invited experts on autism to participate in talk-backs at the conclusion of each show. Cast members discussed how they prepared for their roles, and I fielded a few questions about the structure of the play.
