The Summer of Daisy Fay

New American Folk Theatre is pleased to present The Summer of Daisy Fay, the inaugural production of NAFT’s “season of audio theatre,” featuring new recordings of three of the company’s past productions. The one-woman show starring Charlie Irving is written by Ed Howard, based on the novel “Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man” by Fannie Flagg and directed by Co-Artistic Director Anthony Whitaker.

Charlie Irving returns to her 2016 Jeff Award-nominated role of Daisy Fay Harper. We meet a charming, spunky young woman from small town Mississippi who has dreams of and ambitions for something more. Daisy carries the audience with her as she recounts memories, both heartfelt and jovial, from her tom-boyish youth to her theater success to her beauty pageant ambitions.
