DAISY - THE MUSICAL
Rebecca Lock (Phantom of The Opera, Mary Poppins, Mamma Mia!) singing It Is What It Is from the musical Daisy at Caroline Kay's Live At Zedel gig in London, September 2019. In the show, the character of 'Mother' sings this song to her daughter, Daisy.
THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE STORY
Born and raised in Dublin, Caroline grew up on family get-togethers, impromptu sing-songs, and a strong daily dose of Irish wit. Family, music, and humour were ever-present, at good times and bad.
After two of her aunts passed away from cancer, Caroline witnessed the strength and resilience of her family through such difficult experiences, and was in admiration of their innate ability to use light-hearted humour at even the saddest of times. Inspired by these personal experiences, Caroline wanted to write a story about the resilience of a family facing adversity, and wanted to lace music and humour throughout.
Daisy is set in Dublin and centres around the title character and her family. The show opens with the characters having to face one non-conventional challenge, but as the story develops, so too do the challenges they face.
