Live at the Old Barn:
Komedia Bath is proud to have teamed-up with Kelston Records to present a series of open air events at the Old Barn site at Kelston Roundhill, near Bath.
Daisy Campbell’s one-woman show is part tribute to her father, Ken Campbell – “one of the most unclassifiable talents in British Theatre in the last half century” (The Guardian Obituary, 2008) – and part exploration of the further reaches of counter-culture and beyond.
Having grown up repeatedly watching her father’s one-man shows (cheaper than a babysitter), Daisy Campbell is now marking the ten year anniversary of his 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 through an accidental act of gastromancy (the rectal invocation of dead spirits), there’s no telling what he might goad her to do…
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. Pigspurt’s Daughter is her first full-blown one-woman show.
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. This funny, extraordinary show will twist your mind into knots while it breaks your heart.
“Pigspurt’s Daughter 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
“Comedic, meticulously crafted genius and a joyful ride from start to finish” – Theatre Box ****
