Performing online to no live audience, comedian David ‘Dave’ Davidson 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.
The Preacher is a digital theatrical performance of the entire Biblical book of Ecclesiastes (Koheleth) framed as a contemporary stand-up comedy show.
'The Preacher' explores the relationship between performance and preaching, and contemporary and ancient wisdom.

That Noack is able to introduce so many characters in half-an-hour is testament to the quality of the writing on offer here... Overall this is a fantastic hour’s entertainment easily worth the price of entry.’ - Vince Chadwick Crikey
‘The two short plays proved themselves a worthy inclusion as part of the Comedy Festival lineup, providing the audience with a steady stream of laughter for 60 minutes.’ -Suzanne Tate Theatre People
