About Precious Little Talent
A new play by Ella Hickson Winner of the 2011 Pearson Playwright Award, Precious Little Talent opens at Trafalgar Studios.
Directed by James Dacre (The Mountaintop, 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play) It's Christmas and Londoner Joey flees to New York in a bid to find comfort with her estranged father. Just as the world seems to have shunned her, so will he. Yet in the face of such rejection world-weary Joey falls in love with an idealistic young American. Precious Little Talent is a story of fathers and daughters, of aspiration and frustration, of memory and loss.
