Precious Little Talent

By Ella Hickson

EPUB £7.99£6.40

A touching and funny play about 20-somethings graduating into a world that's sold them down the river.

Joey's got a first-class degree, 20k worth of debt and works in a pub. Shunned by the world, rejected by her estranged father, she finds herself falling in love with an idealistic young American…

Ella Hickson's play Precious Little Talent was first performed at the Bedlam Theatre, Edinburgh, in August 2009, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. A revised, full-length production opened at the Trafalgar Studios, London, in April 2011.

Precious Little Talent is also available in the volume Precious Little Talent & Hot Mess, and in the collection Ella Hickson Plays: One.

Press Quotes

'It is young, full of spluttering energy and has a real fire in its belly about the need to retain your optimism in a cruel world… Hickson really is a little bit special'

Guardian

'Terrific poignant freshness; Sam and Joey too seem like iconic figures for our time; caught between light and dark, life and death, cynicism and faith, and full of a life-force – an impressive follow-up to Eight'
