Go People and Glass Half Full Productions in association with Park Theatre presents

Daisy Pulls It Off

By Denise Deegan

Directed by Paulette Randall


'A genuinely hilarious, age, colour and gender-blind production of the classic boarding school satire' ★★★★ Time Out

'Stupendously silly but completely charming... Spiffing fun for Christmas' ★★★★ WhatsOnStage


Look out chaps! There’s a new girl in school.

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.

Spiffing! Hooray! It’s 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.

This one’s certainly not just for the kids!

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 starring Pauline McLynn (Father Ted, Shameless), Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter film series, Hollyoaks), Shobna Gulati (Dinnerladies, Coronation Street) and Clare Perkins (EastEnders, Family Affairs).
