"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 - Melanie Spencer makes her Hampstead Theatre debut as writer and director of a bittersweet comedy which examines the complexities of family life."
"Melanie Spencer works as a playwright and a director. She co-founded company Made By Brick with producer Clemmie Forfar in 2011. The company creates work exploring modern life, striving to engage collaborators who don't normally access the arts and place them at the centre of the initial creative process. Melanie was part of the Young Playwright's scheme at Chichester Festival Theatre from 2009-2011. Responsible Other was long-listed for the Bruntwood Prize in 2011."
