Two plays by award-winning playwright Ella Hickson.

Precious Little Talent is about a father desperate not to forget his daughter and two young people determined not to be forgotten by the world.

It was first performed at the Bedlam Theatre, Edinburgh, as part of the 2009 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and later, in a revised, full-length production, at the Trafalgar Studios, London, in April 2011.

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.

Hot Mess was first performed at the Hawke & Hunter Below Stairs Nightclub, Edinburgh, in August 2010, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

‘A rising star of British theatre … she has a gorgeous way with words and head full of bewitching ideas. Hickson remains a red-hot one to watch’

‘She writes with great assurance using charmingly poetic language… Miss Hickson proves to be an inspired director’
