Daisy Pulls it Off

A comedy, by Denise Duggan. Directed by Sheila Doughty
June 1993


Daisy Pulls it Off is an affectionate, keenly observed parody of life in an English boarding school for girls in a bygone era. The plucky heroine Daisy Meredith, an elementary school girl, is forced to face and overcome snobbish prejudice from her jealous schoolgirl rivals. Daisy excels as much on the hockey-pitch as in the classroom. Yet she is still bounding with enough energy to search for the missing treasure that would save the fortunes of her beloved Grangewood School, all with the help of her best chum, the irrepressible madcap Trixie Martin.
