“…it’s a work of genius. Daffodils should play all over the country. It should play all over the world. It resonates so strongly as a piece of our own mixed-up, precious culture, it should be our new national flag." [Simon Wilson, Metro]

In March 2014, Bullet Heart Club launched with the critically acclaimed, award-winning sell-out hit 'Daffodils'. The much-loved Kiwi cabaret returns to Q Theatre in April for five nights only, before embarking on a national tour. Don't miss out - book your tickets early!

This is far, far more than boy meets girl. This is real life romance – Kiwi cabaret style.

Pull the cover off your favourite vinyl and discover a rich sonic world in Daffodils. Travel through a landscape of live music and heart-aching theatre in this beautiful love story about a teddy boy and a farm girl: their first meeting, their marriage and the New Zealand pop-rock soundtrack that shapes their lives.

Rose was 16. Eric, 18. They met at the lake by the daffodils. The same place that Eric's parents met 20 years earlier. Was it destiny? Perhaps. But what happens after years of misread moments, too many maybes and unspoken thoughts that never go away?

'Daffodils' captures the bittersweet nuances of Rose’s and Eric’s life in a mix tape of New Zealand’s greatest hits. Inspired by private letters, real interviews and family myths heard only at garage piss ups, the production unfolds against a backdrop of 1960s Kodak stills, Super8 home movies and fashion photography created by one of New Zealand's leading image makers, Garth Badger (Lorde, Nike). The story is brought to life by Todd Emerson (Westside Story), Colleen Davis (Chicago, Jesus Christ Superstar) and a live three piece band led by Silver Scroll Award winning artist Stephanie Brown (LIPS).

Prepare to have your indie soul rocked.

"Utterly charming... must-see show." - Paul Simei-Barton, NZ Herald
