THE award-winning comedy stage show, The Orchid and the Crow, will be coming to the Cowell Institute on Friday, September 14.

This funny, uplifting musical roller coaster about faith, family and survival is written and performed by Daniel Tobias.

At 29, Mr Tobias is an atheist, single and living the life of a bohemian artist in Melbourne. God was not pleased!

Appalled with Daniel’s lifestyle choices, God makes an example of him and appears on earth to smite him with stage four testicular cancer. Stage five is death.

Daniel is left in a spiritual vacuum and reaching for faith in something.

Enter Lance Armstrong.

Barbara Shearer, who is supporting the production in Cowell, said she was pleased to be presenting this clever, funny and poignant production.

“It’s BYO drink glass and nibbles and we will have raffles and prizes too, with part proceeds going to the Cowell Wellbeing and Mental Health Group.

“I encourage everyone to attend, come have a laugh with Daniel and support a worthy cause.”

The Orchid & The Crow is presented by Salvador Dinosaur and Critical Stages in conjunction with Country Arts SA as part of the Shows on the Road program.

Tickets are $27 for an adult, $10 for under 17s and $24 for group bookings and includes the opportunity to ask questions about the show and Mr Tobias’s journey with cancer.

Doors open at 6.45pm for a 7.30pm start.

Bookings can be made online at www.countryarts.org.au or at Cowell Post Office.

Suitable for audiences 15 and over.
