Terrifyingly, one in two of us will experience cancer first-hand. Toby Peach has bravely brought and now his award-winning Edinburgh Fringe show is embarking on a tour and coming to Canterbury.
The Eulogy of Toby Peach 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 all need one, Toby is just delivering his now.
The Eulogy of Toby Peach is a discovery of self-morality and this original piece explores a true story and an important and difficult subject in a refreshing, insightful and humourous way.
The show delves into the moments when a eulogy may have been a very real possibility for Toby and how those moments changed his life forever.
He said: “I’m really excited to be giving the eulogy a new lease of life in 2016. We were so inspired by the learnings and ideas taken away from the experience last year. Since Edinburgh we’ve been invited to numerous charities to bring the eulogy to their audiences; receiving a standing ovation from 300 young people and their support teams at Teenage Cancer Trust’s conference Find Your Sense of Tumour was an unbelievable experience.
“I cannot wait to reach more audiences across the UK with our show and outreach work, continuing to raise awareness in this difficult subject matter.”
The theatre show is coming to Marlowe Studio from December 4 to 3.
