Following a highly successful tour of Canada and the UK in 2016, the multi-award winning musical comedy, The Orchid and the Crow, is set to weave its magic here during a Butter Factory season from 21 to 25 March.
This funny, life-affirming play is Daniel Tobias’s personal journey, from growing up in a Jewish-atheist household, to coming to terms with his diagnosis in 2004 of stage four testicular cancer.
Along the way – searching for strength – he ironically found inspiration in the story of legendary cancer survivor, Tour de France winner (and ultimately disgraced cycling legend) Lance Armstrong.
Reflecting on Daniel’s real life experiences, The Orchid and the Crow is a solo performance: part story-telling, part cabaret, part theatre, featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Die Roten Punkte. Segueing between rock, pop, and contemporary opera, Daniel effortlessly draws the audience into the inspiring tale of his almost-death experience.
HotHouse Artistic Director, Lyn Wallis, said the show is “really about what gets you through tough times, and although Dan’s story is full of challenging twists and turns, the show is incredibly funny and uplifting. His performance certainly speaks to younger people seeking strength in the face of big challenges, but it also has much broader appeal because Daniel’s musical talents are so incredible and the songs are so witty,” she said.
The play has won a swag of awards, including the following 2015 awards: Outstanding Solo Performance – Ottawa Fringe; Outstanding Individual Performance – London Free Press; Theatre Weekly Award – Adelaide Fringe and Cabaret Writing – Green Room Award.
Daniel Tobias is a hugely talented and respected performer and actor, most noted in Australia for creating Otto in the highly successful and critically acclaimed Die Roten Punkte. With Orchid and the Crow director, Clare Bartholomew, the pair have produced four award-winning Die Roten Punkte live shows, with corresponding albums, that have toured to the USA, UK, New Zealand, Ireland, Belgium, Hungary, Poland, Canada and Germany.
