The Flowers of May 

“He’s going to have his struggles but his autism is only one aspect of who he is” Two & One Productions are proud to present, “The Flowers of May” Written by Matthew McMahon, “The Flowers of May” brings you inside the world of two parents raising a child with a hidden disability while facing up against the social stigmas that come with it.

David and Lisa had visions of what being a parent would be like, but their lives suddenly changed when their son, Conor, was diagnosed with autism.

Together they journey through the joys and challenges of being a parent of a child with ASD. Along the way they must deal with patronising in-laws, exclusionary neighbours while also trying to get past their own differences. The Flowers of May opened in The Garage Theatre Monaghan in April and was very well received.


Two & One Productions is made of three people. We’ve all experience across various levels from theatre to screen to voice over.

The Flowers of May is our first project. “The Flowers of May deals with the topic of raising a child with autism and during the intial run in the Garage Theatre Monaghan we got great feedback from schools, parents and community groups. Our main target audiences would be: Schools communities Autism awareness groups Parents of children with autism
