From Press Release
A Group of Young Artists Confront Their Grief and Fears around Adulthood in the Darkly Humorous “An Orchid and Other Such Lilies and Lies”
Feeling themselves age and their time shorten, a pair of elderly men drive off into the middle of the desert to do an exorbitant number of drugs and go out with a bang. During their last hurrah, they reminisce on their lives together, filling in the gaps of each other’s memories and creating a colourful tapestry of fact, fiction, light, and loss.
An Orchid and Other Such Lilies and Lies has undergone many transformations, as Daniel Halpern wrote numerous versions of the play to reflect his own tumultuous relationship with aging and grief in different stages of bereavement.
The show is produced by the BodyCube Arts Collective, whose members have produced works in New York, Germany, Toronto, and Nova Scotia.
This genuine and brutally honest piece of theatre kindly requests your attention and attendance during
its run with Toronto Fringe.
