By way of [livejournal.com profile] snowballjane, went to see Daisy Pulls It Off, which is spiffing and utterly topping and full of jolly decent girls with plenty of pluck (and the odd utter rotter, who as well as being frightfully snobbish doesn't like hockey, and is therefore clearly a bad egg.)

It was in a pub theatre, in the basement which was pretty sweltering, but was made the whole thing just that much more fabulous.

Key plot points included:
Boarding schools
Orphans
Scholarship girls who -gasp!- went to an elementary school, rather than a decent Prep.
Long lost uncles
Fathers lost at sea
Midnight feasts
Frightful rotters attempting to bully girls out of school by making them look like sneaks and cheats
Hockey (field)
Poetry contests
Secret treasure
Daring cliff-face rescues
Mysterious Russian teachers
Brain fever
Amnesia
Hockey (again)

I think my favourite bit was the brain fever. There just isn't enough brain fever in most plays.
