Having grown up repeatedly watching her father Ken Campbell’s one-man shows (cheaper than a babysitter), Daisy Campbell is now marking the 10 year anniversary of her dad’s death with a Campbellian monologue of her own.

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…

This is both a romp through Ken’s legacy of lunacy, and a quest for Daisy to make peace with the gap he has left.

 

Daisy Campbell has become a noted counter-culture figure since adapting and staging Robert Anton Wilson’s Cosmic Trigger in 2014 and 2017, and directing the 2017 KLF comeback, ‘Welcome to the Dark Ages’. Her talks and events are garnering a nationwide cult following. This is her first full-blown one-woman show.

 

Pigspurt’s Child is a wonderfully funny, intriguing, mesmerising and alarming show. Beautifully written and performed by Daisy Campbell, who invokes her father’s eccentric, anarchic spirit in many more ways than one. A fond memoir, and a stunning comedic exorcism. Seekers: seek it!” – Terry Johnson

Magical, metaphysical, moving and magnificent” – Shaun Prendergast.

This is the best.  I loved it and was so inspired by it. Brilliant fascinating exquisite shit.” – Nina Conti

Ken Campbell was one of the most unclassifiable talents in British Theatre in the last half century” – The Guardian Obituary, 2008
