Florence Espeut-Nickless with Bristol Old Vic Ferment and Pleasance

Suitable for ages 14 and above

Destiny dreams big. She dreams glamour. She’s gonna be an MTV Base backing dancer, you watch. If J-Lo can make it outta the Bronx, then Destiny can make it off the Hill Rise estate in Chippenham. Born below the breadline, she’s desperate to see beyond the neighbourhood and find hope in hopelessness.

This monologue follows the story of a teenage girl growing up on a rural Wiltshire council estate. After a big night out takes a turn for the worse, Destiny’s life spirals out of control as she desperately tries to learn how to love and be loved.
