About the Show

Renowned stand-up and character comedian, Damian Callinan, examines the horrors of war through the lens of a larrikin. The Lost WW1 Diary combines detailed research, hilarious but believable characterisations, black humour, absurdity and deft writing to swing the mood of the story from rollicking farce to aching pathos in a heart beat.

Obsessed from a young age by the Anzac legend and intrigued by the mystery surrounding the identity of two diggers from a family photo, Damian sets out on a quest to put names to the faces. Whilst holidaying in Warrnambool, the discovery of a war diary in an op shop may finally link him to the legend.

‘This is a cleverly written and pitch-perfect delivery of a piece of theatre… the humour, is topical, witty and best of all, it feels real’ ???? Herald Sun

About the Charity

Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation are dedicated to improving survival rates for Pancreatic cancer. The 5-year survival rates in Australia are a woeful 7%, and the Avner Foundation dedicate their resources into research in order to achieve their goal:
“To break through 40 years of no progress by doubling the number of people who survive Pancreatic Cancer by 2020”
An issue close to Damian’s heart, we hope you’ll join us in contributing to this great cause.
