Precious Little Talent is 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 - Hot Mess is a dark and lyrical tale about friendship, loss and loneliness. Twins Polo and Twitch were born with only one heart between them: where Polo is not looking to be loved, Twitch can do nothing but.

Review:

A rising star of British theatre...she has a gorgeous way with words and a head full of bewitching ideas. --Independent

The writing feels fresh and is beautifully observed: funny, original, touching and authentic...a skilled, intelligent playwright with a gift for precise, convincing dialogue, able to address big themes without ever appearing self-important...In some quarters the 26-year-old Hickson has already been anointed as the voice of her generation. --London Evening Standard

A truly lovely piece of theatre...Sophisticated and eloquent...Richly evocative and occasionally comic, Precious Little Talent seamlessly integrates a love story with its representation of strained family ties and the general despair with which many of today's graduates (of whom Hickson is one) are confronting the recession-soaked world. --The List

About the Author:

Ella Hickson's other plays include Eight (Fringe First Award 2008, Carol Tamber Best of Edinburgh Award, NSDF Emerging Artists Award). She is the 2011 Pearson Playwright for the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, and has worked with the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, as their Emerging Playwright on Attachment.
