A kick. A scream. A tantrum. In this family, what’s allowed?

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.

The show, written by Christina Murdock, began a London preview season in venues across London in Summer 2018 before premiering at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe at Underbelly. The show received critical acclaim at the festival and won the inaugural SIT-Up Award at the Festival. The show subsequently transferred Off-Broadway and won the Best Emerging Actress Award at the United Solo Festival. The show has had subsequent critically acclaimed runs at the Tristan Bates Theatre, the Park Theatre, and VAULT Festival in London.
