If there is a new normal, everyone's crazy and nobody's ill.

An epic narrative of vast and imperfect comedic proportions, 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.

Led by self-nominated 'noddies' and 'masters of the absurd', co-Artistic Directors of Ridiculusmus, David Woods and Jonathan Haynes, and featuring the Disability Slapstick Plan, an ensemble of four Melbourne artists with different physical abilities.
