A Normal Child by Disability Slapstick
presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy
We have some of our own talent from St Kilda in this unique story that has been developed over four years. We were lucky to witness early rehearsals and got a glimpse of what appears to be a great piece of work. In their words, if there is a new normal, everyone’s crazy and nobody’s ill.
“A Normal Child” navigates the intricacies of disability representation in a daring, funny, and complex work.
Examining the right to begin and end life from the perspective of the disability sector. The show tackles issues of euthanasia, sex, abortion and IVF through an absurdist comedy lens.
For further information and tickets: A Normal Child
The first show is booked out.
