Presented by Critical Stages & Salvador Dinosaur

A comedy cabaret about losing parts of yourself and finding faith in an unexpected place. And 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. The show has received enormous acclaim and awards in Melbourne, Edinburgh and festivals all across Canada.
A unique, brilliantly clever and ultimately moving story that deals with rarely discussed themes while being seriously entertaining.

70mins no interval.
Suitable for audiences 15+
