And Before I Forget I Love You, I Love You/Dangerous Giant Animals
Pip Utton, one of the world's foremost solo performers (Adolf, Churchill, Chaplin, Play-ing Maggie) delivers his moving and affec-tionate performance about the devastating effects of Alzheimer's in And Before I Forget I Love You, I Love You. Pip is famed for his skill in breaking the fourth wall and speaking directly to an audience, involving them in the emotions of his performance. 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. Christina Murdock's 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 play won the 2018 SIT-Up Award at this year's Edinburgh Festival, was shortlisted for the 2018 Clean Break EdFringe Support Award and was selected for New York's United Solo Theatre Festival 2018.
