A musical comedy about Aliyah by Grant Crankshaw and Daniella Roman
When a naïve, South African, Methodist boy meets a sassy, Israeli,Jew-“ish” girl and they move to Israel, fun is sure to follow.
Together, Against the Odds is a two-man comedy show loosely based on the lives of Grant Crankshaw and Daniella Roman. It traces their life together, Aliyah and what keeps them living in Israel. In a lighthearted and fun way, the audience gets a glimpse of the unusual and often hilarious adventures of this entertaining pair as they stumble through life. They keep the audience laughing and smiling with their amusing skits and stories, interspersed with well-known songs, marking the milestones in their lives together.
Grant and Daniella are professional actors who made Aliya from South Africa in 1997. In Israel they have performed in many productions together including “Tom & Viv”, “Lysistrata”, “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”, “Sentimental Journey”, “Eli, Eli”, “Cabaret” and “Vanities” to name just a few. Today they have their own theater production company and have two additional productions running namely “Zeh Broadway, Buba” and the Arthur Miller classic “All My Sons” which tours schools around Israel.
