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?

Marie Curie. Physicist. Pioneer. Parent.

Marie Curie is certain that she can make a name for herself and change the course of science in the progress as she arrives from her native Poland to study at Sorbonne University in Paris. When she discovers Radium, a new chemical element, she’s lauded with the Nobel Prize but is faced with an overwhelming moral dilemma. Whilst Marie is discovering the lifesaving potential of Radium to cure cancer, factory workers handing Radium are succumbing to the insidious grip of radium poisoning,

In a breathtaking display of courage and resilience, she shatters the glass ceilings of her time, defying the odds as a fearless female immigrant. A story of life and death, ‘Marie Curie’ has already captivated audiences in Korea with its sweeping score and story and is now brought to English-speaking audiences for the first time.
