Even if you weren’t alive in 1964, chances are good you’ve at least heard of, if not seen, the infamous “Daisy” television commercial. Standing in a field, a little girl plucks petals from a flower, counting each one. The camera zooms in on her innocent face as an authoritative male voice begins counting down from 10. A nuclear explosion then erupts on screen. The ad — aired only once during the 1964 presidential race between Lyndon B. Johnson and Barry Goldwater — has since been recognized for forever changing the landscape of American political advertising. And though the 2018 midterms are now over, Spokane’s Stage Left Theater is next producing the timely Daisy, a contemporary script by Sean Devine exploring decisions made by an eccentric group of historically based characters who created the ad’s controversial and resonating imagery.

Nov. 16-Dec. 2: Fri-Sat at 7:30 pm, Sun at 2 pm • $20 • Stage Left Theater • 108 W. Third • • 838-9727
