Daisy Pulls it Off

Daisy Pulls it Off
GSA | West End 

"It's a perfectly ripping yarn."  Daily Telegraph

Fresh from a sell-out run at the Bellairs Theatre, the first graduating year of GSA’s BA Actor-Musician programme brings this unique production full of quirky characters, splendid scrapes and fabulous friends, to delight West End audiences.

1927 - Daisy Meredith is the first scholarship girl taken from an elementary school to be granted access to the hallowed halls of the prestigious Grangewood School for Young Ladies. Enthusiastic and plucky to the last, Daisy finds herself struggling against unspeakable snobs Sybil Burlington and Monica Smithers, who concoct ghastly schemes to get her expelled. Ably assisted by her new best friend, madcap Trixie Martin, Daisy finds herself caught up in a series of irresistible adventures including the search for missing “Beaumont Treasure”. Can Daisy work out the mysterious clues and save the school from closure? What secrets does the enigmatic Mr Scoblowski hide?

This riotous and affectionate pastiche of a classic girls' school story was a huge West End hit and won the Olivier Award and Drama Theatre Award for Best Comedy when first produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1983.
