That's Not a Daffodil-a play about flowers and friendship
Jump Lead Productions' forthcoming play That's Not a Daffodil comes hot on the heels of the highly successful Still Awake Still, and is good news for the discerning three to six year old Melbourne theatregoer.

It's a story of a solitary young boy and his elderly Turkish neighbour and the blossoming of their friendship along with the daffodil they grow together. Jump Lead Productions is the offspring of a group of highly-pedigreed creative types including director Gorkem Acaroglu, musical director Sue Johnson and children's author Elizabeth Honey. In preparation for the opening on August 23, Jump Lead members have collaborated with the City of Moreland to facilitate workshops, talks, art installations and even daffodil-growing.

Rosalind Price, former children's book publisher and co-founder of Jump Leads Productions says "The themes are timely and universal: growth and transformation, the cycle of seasons, tuning into nature, connecting with people across age and cultural difference, and seeing the relationships between all things. This is a funny, inventive show, alive with music, dance, puppetry and animation."

This homegrown production bursts forth for a short season from August 23 to 28. Catch it in full flower while you can.
