Myself and my partner went to see this show yesterday after seeing it advertised on Facebook.

The use of the word daffodils was a clever use of how we can create offensive language through the choice of an innocent word, rather like how the characters were innocent themselves in their repression.

The story and the acting moved me to tears on more than one occasion as we see the repurcusions of the act of an oppressive regime. At times, I was terrified for the safety of the daffodils and their friends and family. This showed how excellent the acting of Igor and his officers were.

Although we are not members of the lgbt+ community, our hearts went out to them and in turn goes out to those in our world who face this kind of hardship on a daily basis.

Congratulations to Grant Redmond for a wonderful yet tragic piece of writing that we will be our minds for a long time.

I came to this show after seeing the cast flyering out on the royal mile. My partner and I felt so effected by the story and the beautiful writing, props to Grant Redmond for moving us both to tears. The acting was incredible and was perfectly complimented by the fabulous directing of Mairi Davidson.

Could not reccommend enough!

The show truly blew me away! The acting was absolutely stunning, it was well constructed, the writing was very deep and the acting made me cry, and I'm not a big cry person.

The directing was really good as the acting was really well done! Strong characters!

Couldn’t disagree more with some of the previous reviews on this show, I was lucky enough to see this performance yesterday after being handed a rather intriguing flyer and was blown away! What a gritty, real show. Amazing, captivating plot with outstanding acting. I believe all of the characters and their journeys, hooked from beginning to end.

I saw this show yesterday and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. From the beginning the shows emotional stakes were high only to climb higher as the show continues. This shows young cast handle the emotional, sensitive issues well. Staged by Mairi Davidson, this current and powerful script by Grant Redmond is one not to be missed. Although, there is a sensitivity warning at the beginning of the show due to the nature of the play, strong language and visual violence.

Absolutely blown away by this performance. The story line and acting had me gripped from the beginning to end.

A very weak show. The whole thing has the air of a school project on a topic, and there isn’t a shred of authenticity about it. The poor writing and directing is equalled by the terrible acting performances.
