The Orchid and the Crow

Tickets on sale via all outlets 1 July 2018!

A Country Arts SA Shows on the Road performance.

Created and performed by Daniel Tobias.

A comedy about an atheist surviving cancer by finding God in Lance Armstrong.

Reflecting on Daniel’s real life (and almost death) experiences, The Orchid and the Crow is a solo performance that is part story-telling, part-theatre featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Otto & Astrid (Die Roten Punkte).

Created by the artists behind the hugely successful Otto and Astrid, this is a unique, brilliantly clever and ultimately moving story that audiences have described as ‘life-changing’. The play deals with rarely discussed themes in an entertaining, theatrical, accessible and comical form.

Suitable for audiences 15 and over.

★★★★ “Turns divine vengeance into comedy gold.” The Age.

WINNER: Best Writing Cabaret – 2016 Green Room Awards.
