‘A fond memoir, and a stunning comedic exorcism. Seekers: seek it!’
Terry Johnson, playwright of Ken, Prism and Hysteria.
Having grown up repeatedly watching her father Ken Campbell’s one-man shows (cheaper than a babysitter), Daisy Campbell marked the 10 year anniversary of her dad’s death with her first one-woman show.
Pigspurt’s Daughter follows Daisy’s surreal quest to go farther than her father – when Pigspurt, the daemonic side of Ken’s personality, is summoned by Daisy through an accidental act of gastromancy, the rectal invocation of dead spirits, there’s no telling what he might goad her to do…
Following Terry Johnson’s Ken, first seen at Hampstead Downstairs in 2016, this is a new and wonderfully funny romp through Ken’s legacy of lunacy from the unique perspective of his daughter. Join Daisy in her mesmerising and alarming quest to make peace with the gap her father has left behind.
‘Ken Campbell was one of the most unclassifiable talents in British Theatre in the last half century’
The Guardian Obituary, 2008.
‘Daisy Campbell is one of the most cunning crafters of comedy and storytelling in the anti-business. A mesmerising performer’ – Simon Jenner, Fringe Review
