In this chapter, the daughters are Lyra Belacqua, Philip Pullman's child-protagonist in the His Dark Materials trilogy, and Strindberg's protagonist, Indra's Daughter (also called Agnes), in A Dream Play. A dramatisation of His Dark Materials was running at the Olivier Theatre when Katie Mitchell's adaptation of A Dream Play opened at the Cottesloe Theatre on 15 February 2005. Katie Mitchell marginalised the Daughter, who is at the centre of Strindberg's play. This chapter attempts to relocate her—to find a ‘lost child’—partly through a discussion of the play, and various productions of it. In addition, this chapter refers to Strindberg's related letters and diary entries, and also to his paintings that were on display at the Tate Modern in an exhibition that ran concurrently with the Cottesloe production.
