Emma and Gill tells the story of two friends who are making a theatre show together. The show is supposed to be all about Emma and her experience as an autistic person. Gill is directing the show, and they’re both performing in it. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that Gill doesn’t know as much about Emma or autism as she thinks she does. Gill thinks that Emma is not normal – not like Gill and everyone else. She doesn’t realise, that Emma has lots of hidden talents and interests, and that maybe they have more in common than Gill would think.
