Daisy Pulls It Off
by Denise Deegan
Directed by Jessica-Ann Jenner
An Olivier Award-winning comedy – the ever popular Daisy Pulls It Off by Denise Deegan was last staged at BLT in 1989. Revived in the West End in 2002 it received 4 star reviews, showing that ripping good yarns are constant winners! It’s an absolutely ripping send up of the classic ‘jolly hockey sticks’ schoolgirl novel, much-loved by readers of Enid Blyton’s Malory Towers series, or The Four Marys from the now-defunct Bunty comic.
Daisy Meredith is the first ever scholarship girl at Grangewood School for Young Ladies. Can she overcome her poor upbringing, outwit the school bullies, master the rules of hockey and find the lost treasure of Grangewood? There’s only one way to find out – and it’s going to be “absolutely spiffing”!
Jessica-Ann Jenner directs a cast of new and familiar faces in this side-splittingly funny spoof, complete with live hockey, long-lost treasure and rather ridiculous accents!
