SIT-Up Sunday: A Day Celebrating Two Award Winning Performances

28 September 2018

 

Park Theatre is to host two plays recognised by the SIT-Up Awards: a new award recently launched at the Edinburgh Fringe to reward and support theatre to achieve greater social impact. Standing for Social Impact Theatre, SIT-Up Sunday will offer a platform to two plays commended in their debut year: And Before I Forget I Love You, I Love You (5pm) by Pip Utton, and the 2018 award-winner Dangerous Giant Animals (7pm) by Christina Murdock on Sunday 28 October.

SIT-UP Awards Founder David Graham said:

“These two plays have been selected as they powerfully change attitudes and move their audiences. And that is the idea of the awards and SIT-UP Sunday at Park Theatre.”


Park Theatre’s Artistic Director Jez Bond said:

“Having been moved to laughter and tears at the Edinburgh Festival, I am utterly delighted to be giving an opportunity for a London audience to see these powerful, punchy and vital plays.”


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.
