Daisy is sixteen. She was normal. Now she’s just an ill person with a disease no one has heard of. The hospital tells her father Peter that she must travel regularly to London for specialist treatment – but how on earth will he get time off work? There’s one person he could ask for help. Problem is, Daisy’s not going to like it.

Responsible Other was staged at Hampstead Theatre in June 2013 and was supported by Guys & St Thomas’ Charity, The Wellcome Trust, Arts Council England, Kevin Spacey Foundation, Mackintosh Foundation, Old Vic New Voices and Breathe AHR.
