Daisy Pulls It Off

Itís 1927 and Daisy Meredith is the first scholarship girl taken from an elementary school to be allowed access to the hallowed halls of Grangewood School for Young Ladies. This riotous and affectionate pastiche of the classic girlsí school story was a huge West End hit and won the Olivier Award and Drama Theatre Award for Best Comedy.

Full of hilarious characters and splendid scrapes, Denise Deegan's play celebrates with a sly wit and a big heart an arguably sweeter, more innocent era.
