Daisy worked alongside her father, Ken Campbell for many years, helping to create Pidgin Macbeth, (an attempt to teach the world a lingua franca via the medium of Shakespeare in Pidgin English) and The Tilly Matthews Academy of Bizarre and Adventurous Education (for performers in the business of becoming “extraordinary”) amongst many other capers.
She directed the revival production of The Warp, the world’s longest play, staged in London Bridge arches amidst a festival of Seekers; co-conceived and ran The Questival, a successful 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 MA in Production and an MSc in Transpersonal Psychology.
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. She compiled and co-directed, along with Richard Eyre, Beyond Our Ken, also performed at the NT.
Daisy also stars in the play as her mother Prunella.
