Talawa Stories: Precious Little Thing

Friday 21 May, 2.15-2.45pm

A humorous and heartfelt comedy that explores womanhood, class and how being let down by the system leads to heart-breaking choices.

Willow and Nicole's journeys collide in the dead of night when they unexpectedly meet in the garden of a London mansion. Both desiring something from inside No. 92, they join forces to break in. But once they do, and get caught by the Nanny Bian, it's soon revealed that they haven't been completely honest with each other.

Talawa Theatre Company and feral inc co-produced Running with Lions as part of Talawa’s 35th anniversary. Talawa Theatre Company is the UK’s outstanding Black theatre company.

Precious Little Thing was recorded in March 2021 during the national lockdown and in line with Covid safe measures.
