Inspired by Wes Anderson, Amelie, Beckett and the Digital Age. Serge LeBoeuf is unhappy. His children attempt to present him with a reason to continue living. A movement theatre narrative with moments of soulful sincerity, songs, audience interaction, and puppetry.
We are excited to return to the San Francisco Fringe Festival for the first time after our "Best of Fringe"-winning show Stalking Christopher Walken. Daffodil: A Play on Happiness is a new piece we have been workshopping - Created and performed by BrickaBrack company members Alexander Lydon, Gloria McDonald, Maura Tang & Gabriel Grilli.
GG says: "I'd call it a black comedy with puppets, music, movement, and audience interaction," -- "What's been really exciting about this piece is that we started with nothing but a title and a theme. We knew we wanted to examine happiness, and we liked the title Daffodil; everything else has emerged over the past few months. Its been a challenging and amazing process."
The show plays four September performances at the Exit Theatre (156 Eddy Street): Sunday, the 7th at 5:30pm, Wednesday the 10th at 9pm, Friday the 12th at 7pm, and Tuesday the 16th at 7pm; with an additional encore East Bay performance Friday the 19th at 9pm at the Temescal Arts Center (511 West 48th St., Oakland 94609).
