Precious Little Talent opened at Trafalgar Studios, running from 5th April - 30th April.
Joey is a young graduate with a first class degree and a £20,000 debt and now works in a club. Come Christmas she decides to escape to New York to find comfort with her father. However, just as the world has shunned her, so will he. As both the private and public worlds collapse around her Joey will accidentally fall in love with the idealistic Sam.
Precious Little Talent dovetails together two stories; that of a father struglling not to forget his daughter and his daughter struggling not to be forgotten by the world; and a romance that pitches American optimism against British cynicism.
A shorter version of Precious Little Talent
ran to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival in 2009 and enjoyed a sell-out run.
