SIT-UP Awards, in association with The Park Theatre, will be presenting SIT-UP Sunday on 28th October 2018. This is an opportunity to see Christina Murdock’s Dangerous Giant Animals, the winner of the inaugural SIT-UP Award plus And Before I Forget I Love You, I Love You, one of our highly commended productions.
Dangerous Giant Animals: 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. Shortlisted for the 2018 Clean Break EdFringe Support Award and selected for New York’s United Solo Theatre Festival 2018.
And Before I Forget I Love You, I Love You: Pip Utton with his moving and affectionate performance about the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s. Based on his personal experience of seeing his mother deteriorate and die with Alzheimer’s and on intensive research, Pip’s character takes the audience with him on a journey full of smiles, laughter, respect and tears.
The productions will be at 17:00 and 19:00 on the Sunday evening allowing some recovery/discussion or eating/drinking time in between!
