A kick. A scream. A tantrum. With a disabled sister, what's allowed?
Claire’s younger sister, Kayla, has ten small seizures an hour and has the mental capacity of a one year old. Kayla loves dangerous giant animals, like dinosaurs and lions, and her tantrums can rival their violent nature. As a care-taking sibling, Claire struggles to shut down her own animal impulses.
In her powerfully honest play, Christina Murdock plays Claire, a middle child who is forced grow up too soon alongside a sister who never will. Dangerous Giant Animals explores the light and dark of the surreal, challenging, and remarkable reality of what it is like to live with disability in a family.
This taboo breaking, autobiographical solo show explores how Claire learned to find her voice amongst her sister’s screams.
