Daffodils Ed2016

Two microphones, two stretches of carpet, two extremely talented performers and one hell of a band! ‘Daffodils’ is a tale of love set in 1960s New Zealand, a heartfelt and honest portrayal of two characters that are ultimately endearing and believably honest. Their flaws propel the story, through pop-culture references and music that transports the audience through the swinging 60s right up to the dawn of the millennium. The live score is exceptional. With the three-piece band onstage throughout and perfectly accompanying the performers, the show features music from Crowded House to Bic Runga. I urge you to meet Rose and Eric down by the daffodils and join them as their romance blossoms.

Traverse Theatre, until 28 Aug.
