“Mum and Dad? They never ask me about my future. If they did, I’d tell them what I don’t want – their life.”

Guerilla artist Precious operates on the fringes of society. Her gallery is the pristine white walls of her home town. When will she be discovered? Best friend Kamala can’t stand the pressure and dreams of escape. But will her destiny be arranged for her? Friendships unravel as events and circumstances take on a life of their own.

"...the play's virtue is that it is non-judgemental and matches the aspirations of a callow youth, determined to be mistress of her destiny, aware that some people leave it too late to fulfil their dreams."
