“They’re sayin I brought it on myself.
Oh yeah, they’ve heard about me. Basically it must’ve been my fault cause I’m me, Destiny”
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. She’s fearless, ferocious and up for the fight (she’s had to be).
Born below the breadline, she’s desperate to see beyond the neighbourhood and find hope in hopelessness.
A “captivating” ★★★★ (The Guardian) monologue that 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 worst, Destiny’s life spirals out of control as she desperately tries to learn how to love and be loved.
DESTINY is a recipient of The Pleasance’s 2021 National Partnerships Award with Bristol Old Vic FERMENT and was shortlisted for Theatre West’s Write On Women Award.
