Kiwi cabaret show Daffodils selected for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:22 pm on 1 June 2016

Rochelle Bright's cabaret style play Daffodils is based on letters and videos from her parents - it tells the story of 16 year old Rose and 18 year old Eric, who met at the lake by the daffodils.

It features hit songs by many kiwi bands including Crowded House, Bic Runga, Chris Knox, The Mint Chicks and Dave Dobbyn.

Metro magazine described it as "A work of genius. Daffodils should play all over the country. It should play all over the world."

Now it has been selected for the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe.

A benefit concert to raise money for the trip is being held in Auckland on Friday, and the team is also fundraising via Boosted.

Rochelle Bright talks to Jesse Mulligan about taking her production to the world stage.
