Don’t miss a chance to see relevant and thought provoking locally produced theatre.

Bright eyed and eccentric 14-year-old Daisy Moon (played by Isabelle Ford) is President and Founder of the Little Monsters Club for Misfits. She chairs club meetings inside the dusty beachside bus stop on her front lawn. She’s the club’s only member. Her 18-year-old brother Noah, an elite athlete on the cusp of cracking national competitions, couldn’t be more different – until he’s caught trying to cheat in a time trial.

Written by Emily Sheehan, produced by Q Theatre and directed by Nick Atkins, Daisy Moon Was Born This Way is a comic, kooky coming of age story about making mistakes and learning to love yourself anyway.

Daisy Moon and her brother Noah both dream big but they're both stuck in a world that's too small. Daisy is dealing with her mother’s depression, at the same time she’s falling in love for the first time in her life. She’s also reunited with her brother who’s been living away from home. She also has a close imaginary friend in Lady Gaga, who she believes will help her find her way – what-ever that may be!

This tale of fitting in, and standing out, is a must see for audiences young and old.

Here is what some of the audience has said:

“The story goes from strength to strength.”

“It covered so many issues related teenagers.”

“Sad in parts and extremely funny in others – I laughed out loud so much”
