Set in a dorm room, Daisy Chains follows five teenage girls at a summer camp. But when a potential pregnancy is revealed the seemingly perfect camp starts to unravel. As one by one the girls are forced to take an ultrasound, suspicions arise and when a folder is stolen containing files on each girl, it turns out the camp isn't the only one keeping secrets.

Friendships are destroyed, new alliances are drawn and time is running out. Each girl is faced with one question. Should she stay or try to escape?

Daisy Chains is the latest work from award-winning playwright Sarah Richardson. Runner Up in the Platform Presents Playwright’s Prize 2024, this development is supported by Arts Council England, Developing Your Creative Practice grants.
TPE Artistic Director Colin Blumenau comments:
On behalf of The Production Exchange I am delighted to be working with another in a long line of early-career writers. Sarah's voice is individual, dynamic and contemporary. I'm certain that her play will benefit from the work we are preparing to do with it and that there are very exciting times ahead for Daisy Chains.


Writer Sarah Richardson

An award-winning playwright, actor and spoken word poet, Sarah's debut GirlPlay was staged at Dublin Fringe 2019; a subsequent international digital tour included winning Best Digital Experience at Stockholm Fringe 2020-21. GirlPlay headlined the SpaceUK for Edinburgh Fringe in 2022, receiving multiple four- and five-star reviews.  GirlPlay is published by Samuel French, Concord Theatricals.

Sun Bear will be making its UK premiere at the Park Theatre in April 2024.
