The Eulogy of Toby Peach

Thu 6th – Sun 30th Aug 2015


“Refreshing, insightful and humorous”







The Eulogy of Toby Peach is a discovery of self-mortality and this original piece explores a true story and an important and difficult subject in a refreshing, insightful and humorous way.

One in three of us will experience cancer first-hand and now Toby Peach brings this universal issue to the stage. The Eulogy of Toby Peach (winner of a 2015 IdeasTap Underbelly Award) is the story of his journey with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes that he faced at the age of 19 and again at 21. Toby didn’t know what cancer was, what happens when it’s treated and the effects it can have. A Eulogy is a celebration of life - we will all need one; Toby is just delivering his now.

Join Toby as he enters the (not so) exclusive Cancer Club; sample chemotherapy cocktails, select the perfect funeral playlist and marvel at Willy Wonka’s life-saving stem cell machine. From diagnosis to remission, relapse and treatment, experience a young man's journey with cancer in this honest, fascinating and inspiring exploration of modern science and the wonders of the human body.
