Overview

Written by Jeff Swearingen, based on a concept by Bren Rapp

Directed by Amanda Liles

East Coast Premiere!

Lie. Cheat. Steal. Sell cookies

Inspired by David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross, DAFFODIL GIRLS turns the famous tale of manhood and cut-throat real estate sales into a dark comedy centering on a group of pre-teen girls trying to make their way through cookie sale season for their scout troupe. Far from a gimmick or simply a parody, DAFFODIL GIRLS uses Mamet's heightened sense of super realism as a way to weave a story about young women struggling to find their place and maneuver through an equally as harsh landscape to anything Mamet could imagine: childhood.

“…howlingly funny yet sharp and eerily appropriate… it lets the audience’s perspective grow as they get the downright fun opportunity to see a classic reimagined.” - TheatreJones
