The Orchid & the Crow - A Comedy About an Atheist Surviving Cancer

Source: Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre
Archived 26 Jun 2018 - Posted: 29 Apr 2018
A comedy about an atheist surviving cancer by finding God in Lance Armstrong – with songs!

Daniel Tobias grew up in a Jewish-atheist household. In 2004, aged 29, Daniel found out he had stage-four testicular cancer and went searching for God. Any god.

Enter Lance Armstrong, seven-times winner of the Tour de France and legendary cancer survivor. Lance Armstrong’s story gave Daniel solace and hope when he needed it. Now of course, Armstrong is a fallen angel and after Daniel’s full recovery, he wonders – how many times will he be cheated by a god?

This is a story about being let down by your heroes and those who you worship – time and time and time again.

Daniel effortlessly draws us into the inspiring real life tale of his near-death experience in this funny, uplifting story of faith, family and survival.

The play deals with the rarely discussed themes of testicular cancer, regular bowel movements, faith, sex and identity in a wonderfully witty, generous, and ultimately life-affirming way audiences have described as life-changing.

Part story-telling, part-theatre and comedy featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Otto & Astrid, this is an original, accessible, brilliantly clever and ultimately moving story.

Join us at The Joan for one show only as Daniel condenses his life into a smart and scintillating show with a bit of singing, talking, rock’n’roll, show biz and a little bit of cancer that will strike a powerful chord.
