Daisy Campbell

Daisy’s one woman show, Pigspurt’s Daughter, toured the UK during 2018. A review of the production recently won the Anthony Burgess/Observer Prize for arts journalism. In 2017 she directed the JAMS Welcome to the Dark Ages event. In 2014 and 2016, she adapted and directed seminal counter-culture novel, Robert Anton Wilson’s Cosmic Trigger. In 2015, Daisy toured the UK with a live reading of The Sentence – a dystopian sci-fi prison tale by Alistair Fruish, written as a single sentence of words of one syllable.

She also worked alongside her father, Ken Campbell for many years, notably translating and co-directing Pidgin Macbeth (an attempt to teach the world a lingua franca via the medium of Shakespeare in Pidgin English) and The Warp. The Warp was a revival production of the world’s longest play (24 hours), staged in London Bridge arches amidst a festival of Seekers, in which Daisy had played the baby in the original.

Daisy also co-conceived and ran The Questival, a festival of future consciousness; wrote and directed a collection of short plays, including The Girl with the Global Brain, and The Big Q; and has an MSc in Transpersonal Psychology, of which she is extremely proud. Her anarchic children’s play, School Journey to the Centre of the Earth was performed as part of the National Theatre Connections programme twice, as well as being performed around the world.
