A ripping revival of Denise Deegan’s Olivier Award-winning, festive heart-warmer Daisy Pulls It Off wraps up Park Theatre’s 2017 season.
Our plucky heroine Daisy is ready for a topping new term and to take on a jolly ripping mystery in this whizzo family treat for Christmas. In Go People’s anarchic hands, Denise Deegan’s fabulously affectionate parody of 1920s schoolgirl novels is transformed into a riproaring spectacle of ensemble theatrical magic.
Daisy Meredith, the energetic new girl from an underprivileged background, is the first scholarship student to attend Grangewood School for Girls. Faced with prejudice and pranks from the wealthier schoolgirls, Daisy also discovers her new school is faced with financial closure. Having won over a zany group of chums, Daisy concocts a wizard plan to save the school with the discovery of a secret treasure.
Spiffing! Hooray! Daisy Pulls It Off is the perfect addition to your Christmas festivities: a riotous adventure to chase away the winter chills, served with lashings of love from the company behind the Park Theatre sell-out Almost, Maine.
Daisy Pulls It Off is directed by prolific theatre and television director Paulette Randall (for theatre: Five Guys Named Moe, Play Mas and Fences; for TV: Holby City, River City and The Real McCoy) and stars Pauline McLynn (Father Ted, Shameless), Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter film series, Hollyoaks), Shobna Gulati (Dinnerladies, Coronation Street) and Clare Perkins (EastEnders, Family Affairs).
This one’s certainly not just for the kids!
