DAISY PULLS IT OFF
Denise Deegan’s Olivier award winning comedy Daisy Pulls it Off. Set in the 1920s, this parody of the jolly hockey-sticks girls’ boarding school world of Angela Brazil, with its dorm feasts, hidden treasure and climactic cliff-edge rescue, has more than a hint of Harry Potter, though with more laughs – not least because the girls are played by adults!
Daisy is the first elementary school pupil to win a scholarship to an exclusive girls’ private school, and the play is about the obstacles and prejudices she has to overcome. Taken as an escapist romp, or as a comment on snobbishness and divisions in English society, it offers apt entertainment for our times.
