The Preacher

David 'Dave' Davidson's debut comedy show may be socially distanced, but the laughs are closer together than ever.

★★★★½ “...highly recommended” - The Adelaide Show

Performing online with no live audience before him, Dave struggles to maintain the momentum in his act. However with effort and a liberal dose of wine, he takes the audience along on his journey to question a seemingly absurd and unfair world.

Available online through theBrighton Fringe Festival website from 28 May - 27 June

The Preacher is a digital theatre performance of the biblical book of Ecclesiastes (Koheleth) framed as a contemporary stand-up comedy show. It explores the relationship between performance and preaching, and contemporary and ancient wisdom.

The production views this profound text from the Hebrew Bible as the written recording of a performance to a gathered crowd some two millennia ago. A performance that used humour and rhetoric in a similar manner to today’s stand-up comedians.
