Daisy Pulls It Off
26th January - 3rd February 2017
~ Directed by Hannah Leonard ~
It's 1927 and the mighty and proud institution of the Grangewood School for Girls is rocked to its core by a shocking and horrifying event... the arrival of the first ever scholarship pupil! Our heroine, Daisy Meredith: daredevil, tomboy, possessed of a brilliant mind, fond of practical jokes, but honest, courageous and straight in all things.
Can she and new best friend Trixie outwit the diabolical machinations of the school's arch-snob and general meanie Sybil Burlington? Can she discover the secret of the mysterious Russian music teacher? Can she find the long-lost secret treasure of Grangewood and save the school? And, most crucial of all, can she help the school to victory in the all-important Hockey Cup Final when she's only learned to play by reading a book?
Full of hilarious characters and splendid scrapes, this riotous and affectionate pastiche of the classic girls' school story celebrates, with a sly wit and a big heart, an arguably sweeter, more innocent era.
