New musical Daisy from Caroline Kay announces workshop cast

New musical Daisy from Caroline Kay has announced a workshop cast.

The piece has music, lyrics and a book by Caroline Kay.

A teaser shares: “This story explores several forms of loss, challenges the resilience of a family, and celebrates the healing-power of storytelling. After waking from a coma with no memory of life before her accident, a young woman must try to move on knowing little more than her name: Daisy.”

The workshop in London will be directed by Séimí Campbell with musical direction and orchestration by Sarah Travis.

The cast will feature Jessica Cervi, Christopher Chung, Hilda Fay, Caroline Kay, Jason Manford, Johan Munir, David O’Reilly and Rachel Tucker.

Kay said: “After having to switch to virtual creative meetings and Zoom readings during the pandemic, I’m so excited to get this group of talented creatives into a Covid-safe space to develop the piece.

“Though this is a private workshop, for safety reasons, it is only the beginning of the journey for this show, which we hope to bring to audiences very soon.”
