A kick. A scream. A tantrum. With a disabled sister, what’s allowed? What’s forbidden?

​Dangerous Giant Animals is a darkly comedic show about finding your voice amid your sister’s screams

Funny and daring, this new one woman play explores how surreal, challenging, and remarkable disability in a family can be. Featuring divas and dinosaurs, this is a middle child story about growing up too soon alongside a sister who never will.

Posted on 18 July 2018

Christina Murdock’s debut solo show is based on her own experience of disability: through the eyes of a sibling. Her younger sister, who is severely disabled, has a love for the dangerous giant animals of Jurassic Park and Jaws.

The comedy is all about compassion for people with disabilities and those who care for them.
