The Orchid and The Crow (Australia)

An hilarious and life-affirming comedy cabaret about staring mortality in the face with a laugh and a song.

Big, beautiful, ugly, crazy life-changing moments often arrive without warning, uprooting the peace, order and logic of our everyday lives. The Orchid and The Crow is a show about such a life event. In sharing it with us, Daniel Tobias shows us a lot about how to handle such a moment with strength, creativity and a lot of good humour. 

The Orchid and The Crow has already played to enormous acclaim and awards in Melbourne, Mandurah, Edinburgh and festivals all across Canada, and is by the award-winning creative team behind Die Roten Punkte.

Warning: Contains adult themes.

★★★★ “Daniel Tobias' Orchid and Crow turns divine vengeance into comedy gold…” THE AGE

★★★★ "Tobias is an intelligent, dynamic and honest performer who is highly entertaining to watch. This show will renew your faith in love, life, and possibly even Lance Armstrong.” CBC CANADA
