Written by Elizabeth Honey with Görkem Acaroglu

Tom is wary of Mr. Yilmaz at first, but trust and playfulness build as they grow a daffodil together and enter more and more into each other’s lives. ‘That’s not a daffodil! That’s an onion!’ says Tom when Mr. Yilmaz 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. The show delighted packed audiences for its premiere seasons at the Mechanics Institute Theatre in Melbourne, and the Kyneton Daffodil & Arts Festival, in 2016.

Director Görkem Acaroglu, Composer/Musical Director Sue Johnson, Performers Kayla Hamill and Celal Perk
