Funny, full of surprises and alive with music, puppetry and animation, ‘That’s not a Daffodil’ is a captivating music theatre show about trust and friendship between young and old from different worlds.

'That's not a daffodil! That's an onion!' says Tom when his neighbour presents him with a bulb to plant. ‘That’s not a daffodil, that's a green beak!' he says when the first shoot pokes up.

Inspired by the popular picture book, That's not a Daffodil! by Elizabeth Honey, this is a show about understanding between young and old from different worlds. It's about the importance of planting and growing, giving and sharing, and seeing the relationship between all things. It celebrates living imaginatively through friendship, language, music and play.
