Laugh, chuckle, roar and buckle for a roller coaster ride through 14 short comedy films portraying the imperfect worlds of human beings. After all, not only does being “imperfect” make you human, it also highlights our hidden strengths; it is the reason why everyone is unique in their own way.


“Nobody’s Perfect” – doesn’t matter if it’s trying to make a quick buck from buying alcohol for a minor, wanting to feed ducks illegally or even the attempt to rob a bank in your senior years, we all have our flaws and weaknesses that, in comedy filmmakers imaginations, make for the most fantastic and strange situations.

Each film, bizarre or crazy, each film is perfect just they way they are – welcome to “Imperfect Worlds”



VENUE: Margaret River HEART – Bar opens at 7pm, film commences 7:30pm.
Enter from the rear of the building closest to Gloucester Park parking bays, opposite the  Margaret River Football  Club.

Tickets: Adult $20, Arts Hub Members $15, Youth $12 (Please note: Youth must be accompanied by an adult as this is a licensed event)


Please note: flat floor seating only (raked seating is not available).

The Orchid and the Crow

The Orchid and the Crow is 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 he 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 tale of his near-death experience in this funny, uplifting story of faith, family and survival. Part story-telling, part-theatre featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Otto & Astrid this is an original, accessible, brilliantly clever and ultimately moving story that audiences have described as ‘life-changing’. The play deals with rarely discussed themes in an entertaining, theatrical, accessible and comical form.

WINNER: Green Room Award – Best Writing, Cabaret 2016.
WINNER: Outstanding Solo Performance – Ottawa Fringe 2015 (Canada)
WINNER: Outstanding Individual Performance – London Free Press 2015 (Canada)

★★★★ “Turns divine vengeance into comedy gold.” The Age

‘Daniel Tobias has condensed his entire life into a smart and scintillating 75-minute variety show – The Orchid and the Crow is wise, generous, and blackly funny and it’s constantly in the rim of appalling taste. If we gave stars – this would have a fistful.” The Australian

Presented by Arts Margaret River and performed at The River Hotel. Doors open 7pm, show commences 8pm. All bookings through Arts Margaret River.

Tickets: $30 Adult, $27 Concession (Pension/Health Care Card), $25 Arts Hub Member
